Stress and Heart Attack - Can Stress Cause a Heart Attack?

blood pressure and heart rate increased in all of them. However, in the group who
had suffered an attack due to stress, it took a significantly longer time for the blood
pressure to return to normal compared to the group whose cause of previous attack
was not stress. Also, the former group had higher number of clot forming platelets in
their blood. Platelets are formed to stop the bleeding when tear occurs in the heart
vessels due to an attack. However, these clots can also cause a blockage restricting
the blood flow to the heart.

Another group of researchers have also found that ambitious, aggressive, critical,
self-demanding people are more susceptible to heart attacks than less ambitious and
less competitive people. When one understands how stress is caused, it becomes
clear why the research holds true. We get stressed when things go out of control or
when we get too much attached to the outcome of our actions. Ambitious and
aggressive people are often critical and demanding of themselves and others. This
attitude puts a lot of stress on oneself. On other hand, less-ambitious and contented
people do not have high expectations. Therefore they are much more relaxed.

One thing is clear, when it comes to managing stress, relaxation is the key.

people with past history of heart
attack where given stressful tasks,
