Hi Sir, Through out the internet i have been reading about cardiac arrest and heart attacks....I want to know are both the same or two different things. Plus my grandfather died a few years back when he was on a trip and none of our family memebers were around him, so only with the aftermaths we realized he had a heart attack, we wr informed by the doctors that he had a Massive heart attack . Also he had some internal bleeding in his brain acompanied with blood from his mouth, nose and ears. though he had no habits of drinking neither was he under any medical supervision or drugs, infact he used to practise yoga every morning and had been fit till his last. So if anyone could tell me what exactly happened to him would be highly useful to me and my family...and would have triggered the heart attack...

I've had jaw alignment problems all my life. I have sleep apnea, teeth grind, and facial pain. I have tried CPAP for sleep apnea for months, but I don't
sleep better (I have to sleep on my right side to get any sleep). I wake chocking when I wear a Mouth Guard at night. My teeth actual grind more during
the day, especially while eating. Various doctors have tried different Mouth Guards (more then a dozen), behavioural therapy, massage for pain, and relaxation
therapy for these symptoms, nothing has work at all. The tops of my two back right teeth have broken off. I tried many times with caps, that didn't stay on. I final gave up on the teeth, which has reduced the facial pain. I've been told my jaw is misalign several times over the years, but doctors always do the same treatments, time after time(for past 20 years). Why won't they fix the problem with my jaw, instead of addressing problems caused by my jaw?
