Heart Attack Caused By Direct Energy Weapons
Can nicorette gum and/or energy drinks cause false heart attack symptoms? Second. Is it dangerous to have low blood pressure?
I'm 18 and drank four 5 hour energy drinks within a matter of about 5 hours or so. I am displaying symptoms of a heart attack. What do I do?
It is possible: There were several deaths of young people, probably more from heart rhythm disturbances than "heart attack" related to use of energy drinks. They are not all the same - some have the amount of caffeine in a strong cup of coffee, others have way more. Caffeine is ok in modest doses, don't exceed it.
