Is it possible to have a heart attack at the age of 30? And what are the signs?
Is it possible to have a heart attack at the age of 30? Just wondering
If so what are the signs Ive searched everywhere on the net and got no answer just a bunch of crap
Just to clarify i do not suspect one on myself i am just doing some research
Unfortunate its possible to have a heart attack at any age, young or old. I would say if it happened when you were still reasonably young such as yourself, the chances are lower because you've not been around long enough to get the general wear and tear of a heart that becomes diseased.
Again it can happen and is predicted to happen at younger ages now, because of the way people eat, and its supposedly the children of today that are doomed to getting such things in their 40's, due to the fast foods and too much fats that we eat. So its worth while study your own style of food and if need be makes amends. Grill instead of fry, use lower calories foods, drinks lots of water and do things like that, to keep our cholesterol down.
Remember, prevention is better than cure !!

I have had 2 episodes of sudden chest pain, dizziness, arm pain and cold sweats in the past few months requiring hospitalization with some changes to my ECG results, no enzymes seen in blood tests (no heart damage). A recent angiogram was negative for coronary artery blockages. I remain on beta blockers and aspirin until seen again soon by my cardiologist. My father died @ age 44 of a heart attack and I am a 43 year old male. What are some other possible causes and questions I should be asking my doctor ?
Just got a leaflet through the door telling all the symtoms of a heart attack , it says don t mess about waiting just call the emergency services. Now, I have those symtoms everyday, I also have high b.p. (last checked 120/170 only last week). Am I having heart attacks? Sorry, numbers wrong way round. Feel it like most days but thougt a heart attack was going to be of hollywood proportions, this leaflet describes what I feel.

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?
My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
Recently I have been experiencing a "racing heart" ulse rate upwards to 111, and general tiredness. Is this something to be concerned about since heart disease runs in my family, including a sibling that died from a heat attack at age 57. My age is 56
