Research shows that stress is one of the biggest causes of heart attacks. The problem with this is that you get stressed, and then you worry about your heart, which makes it beat faster and gives you more stress, which then makes your heart beat even faster. Best not to get stressed. There are so many things you can do in life to reduce your chances of a heart attack. I think we need more information.
