Suffered a heart attack, full body tremors while sleeping. Cause of concern?

My partner had a heart attack last march. He is 38, a keen runner with a good diet and rarely drinks, hence doctors/specialists couldn t pinpoint a cause. He has now made a full recovery, although in weeks past, I ve noticed what I can only describe as full body tremors - these do not wake him up, although I m worried that this may have cause for concern?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is not clear enough to conclude.
Most abnormal movements (epilepsy is exception) do not occur during sleep.
So it may not be tremor!
The movements may be synchronous with his pulse?
Only direct observation by a medical personnel could make a positive conclusion...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Cardiac Surgeon Dr. Nisarga's  Response
In most of the cases the cause for a heart attack can not be found out. Genetic predisposition is one of the unknown causes.
Kindly watch him weather the tremors are mild or convulsive type. It is unlikely that it is related to heart attack. It may be because of generalized weakness.
