Can visit to a hair salon cause heart problems ?

hello!! My grandma has for many years now a serious heart deficiency. Last year on february she had a stroke... Last saturday she went to the hospital with pains in the chest ... the thing is that both times before the incident she had visited a hair salon... it may be completly irrelevant and doctors may laugh for years with this but i was wondering can something from the hair salon, like hair coloring hairspray hair dryer, cause problem to someone with heart conditions?

Hi Anna, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Visiting a Hair Salon or Using Hair Dye is not a Predisposing factor for Coronary Heart Disease or stroke which your Grandma is suffering from. It is Unhealthy Lifestyle. She needs antiplatelet and anticoagulant medications along with regular exercises and healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include Fresh fruits and Green Veggies. She needs to take her Medications regularly and go for regular follow up.
Good Luck.

A year ago my mother had a so-called stroke. After some tests they found she had a hole in her heart but they told her it was too small and not to worry. Well a year later-the same thing happens, but worse and it seems to be happening more often. Symptoms are feeling tired, fast heartbeat, then she faints or feels faint. She says she can t brush her hair without getting tired and some doctor here in town said it was her blood pressure-even though those tests came back normal. So this doctor puts her on those blood pressure pills and we told her to stop taking them. They didn t help and she s still having problems. Tell me what s wrong with her and what can be done.

My husband was diagnosed today with an abnormal ekg and something else that I can't recall--he texted me his diagnosis. He with have to go in shortly for arthrascopy (sp?) and possible stents. His paternal uncle and father were both dead of heart disease by their late 60's. He is 64. We have been having a number of "falling outs" lately; we've been married for 39 years. I feel that his personality is changing. I've heard that this can happen with coronary heart disease. Is this true?
