Can congenital heart disease and impending heart attacks cause excessive sweating, esp. On the forehead?

As a result, faster heart rates, changes in blood pressure and sweating can occur, common to the classic fight-or-flight response. Excessive sweating for no apparent reason can be a red flag to warn about a heart attack even before any chest pain.See 1 more doctor answer

Many other tests may be needed depending on these chemistry tests as well as hematology and urine microscopy, ultrasound and serologic testing.See 1 more doctor answer
