Can Internal Bleeding Lead To A Heart Attack
Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more

No, not reliably: Consequences of heart disease or stroke on blood pressure and visa versa, the effect of blood pressure on the heart or brain, is not uniform.

Hernia most common: Abdominal strain can lead to an internal hernia (groin, navel). That is the most common problem & occurs even if you are otherwise healthy.

Use common sense by building up workouts gradually under safe conditions. ...Read more

Causative: Coronary artetiosclerosis leads to plaque buildup which in turn eventually causes a stenosis in the coronary. Acute plaque thorombosis leads to acute coronary closure with the obvious myocardial ischemic necrosis. Emergency coronary revascularization within minutes of the occlusion re establishes blood flow and rescues the heart muscle that has not perished. Heart muscle that dies is gone for good. ...Read more

Does heart failure always happen after a heart attack? What are the symptoms of heart failure and does heart attacks always lead to heart failure?
Heart: Heart failure can cause shortness of breath, which may worsen with activity or when lying down or sleeping. Heart failure can also cause chest pain, fatigue, exercise intolerance, swelling of the legs, abdominal fullness, loss of appetite, weight gain, or heart palpitations. The symptoms are related to water retention and decreased ability for the heart to maintain adequate blood flow to the body's vital organs. Heart attacks are the most common cause of heart failure, but they do not always lead to heart failure. In the modern era, there are several ways to treat heart attacks which minimize the risk of developing heart failure later. If you have had a heart attack, it is crucial to improve your risk factors to help prevent more heart attacks or the development of heart failure. This means eating healthy, exercising, not smoking tobacco, and controlling your blood pressure and cholesterol. ...Read more

Arteriosclerosis: Heart attacks are more a result of inflammation than arteriosclerosis. You can have stable plaque or unstable plaque. Inflammation puts you at risk of rupturing a plaque and having a heart attack. I recommend having labs for inflammation, oxidation, genetic markers, diabetes markers, and have a sono of your carotid artery to see if you have plaque or not. ...Read more
Sclerosis: Arteriosclerosis or atherosclerosis of the arteries to the heart results in irregular protrusion on the inside of the vessel. This causes turbulent flow of blood, causing the platelets to hit each other, aggregate, form small clots that get thrown to where they can't pass through and a complete blockade of that vessel and death of tissue just supplied by that artery. That is heart attack. ...Read more
