Had heart attack, crying easily, emotional problems. Is this normal?

6 years ago, i had a major heart attack , luckily i arrived at the hospital while it was still in progress and they were able to stop it. Since then, i have been healthy, not able to do all i used to but can do all normal activities. the only thing that bothers me is that i cry at the drop of a hat at any emotional or touching things in life or at the movies. Is this normal?

Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Post heart attack patients frequently on risk for depression which can lead to crying spells. But you reported crying only very few occasion, which according to me do not need intervention. Just incorporate aerobic exercise and healthy diet in routine.

But, if problem is prolonged or severe and leading to frequent interpersonal problems, then for assessment and treatment, you can visit specialist like psychiatrist.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
