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.)

Check cholesterol: You are likely too young to be at any risk in the near future. However, when a close relative has a heart attack at a young age, it is worth looking at your cholesterol values to screen for any indication of Familial Hypercholesterolemia, a genetic disease that runs in families and needs to be aggressively treated as early as possible.See 2 more doctor answers

I have dis pain upper part of neck or lower part head at the back. Parallel to my ear middle. Cause? Is it heart attack or stroke or anything fatal?
Not likely: An early thirties female with post-auricular pain likely has occipital neuritis or tendinitis of superior trapezius at occiput, especially with pain to palpation or with range of motion of neck. If there are not these findings and if pain is constant then see a doctor. Concerns increase if there is dizziness or use of cigarettes and taking of birth control pills, a bad combination. See a doctor.
Are there any preventive tests to show if artery is clogged? My mom died fatal heart attack she had everything but mra or catheterization. Dad wants to make sure his arteries ok. Ekg stress test done
Most fatal MI's -: Not usually caused by progressive obstruction, but by rupture of an existing plaque. This involves inflammatory response in the arterial wall, and the subsequent formation of an obstructive clot. Tobacco and other factors can greatly increase the likelihood of this occurrence; evaluation needs to be done by a cardiologist, and all risk factors should be identified and reduced.See 2 more doctor answers

If my test was positive for stress induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what does that mean? Have I ever had an heart attack before?
Not necessarily: You need confirmatory testing for this abnormal finding. A high grade blockage in a heart artery could cause this even if you have not had a heart attack.
What do you suggest if my test was positive for stress induced ischemia in the anteroseptal wall, what that means have I every had an heart attack before?
Ischemia with stress: Hi. Without seeing the test done or the report, we can't say whether or not you've had a heart attack before. At the least, when you exercise and heart muscle oxygen demand goes up, not enough oxygen gets to the anterior wall and the septum to meet the demand. You need coronary angiography, and may need a stent or a bypass operation; you'll need medical therapy in any event. Ask your cardiologist

What to do if I'm feeling like I may be close to a stress induced heart attack. Am I going to have one?
What's the symptoms?: Depends on what your symptoms are. If you have chest pain radiating to your jaw or left arm or if you have acute shortness of breath, this is concerning for an impending heart attack. Stress can increase Adrenalin which can reveal limitations in your heart's capacity - which is what a heart attack basically is, when demand from a heart outstrips supply. If you feel this way a lot, see an MD.

Heart attack: The usual heart attack has severe chest pain and gets the patient's attention real well. Some people have a heart attack and don't know it. We usually find this during testing. When we find evidence of a heart attack that had no symptoms, that's called a 'silent' heart attack.See 1 more doctor answer
