Can’t Walk In People With Heart Attacks?
Hey doctor, just yesterday my boyfriend’s father had a heart attack, today he can’t walk. Is there a relationship between the two? in his family there is no history of stroke
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Heart attack or what in medical language is called myocardial infarction is a condition when the heart does not have adequate blood intake. This is an emergency condition that occurs due to blood clots or accumulation of fat, cholesterol or other ingredients. This disruption in blood intake can cause heart muscle and because the heart is one of the vital organs, this damage can have fatal consequences. Symptoms that arise include shortness of breath, chest pain or pain, weakness and dizziness, as well as anxiety and anxiety.
Among the factors that can increase a person's risk for having a heart attack are:
History of high cholesterol History of similar complaints in families Smoking Diabetes or high blood sugar levels High blood pressure Old age Male sex Eating alcoholic Obesity or excess body weight Eating high saturated fat foods
And actually there are many other possibilities. Regarding your question, whether or not the relationship will depend on various things, but if there is, it is more the same cause or similarity of risk factors, not a heart attack which is the direct cause it cannot walk or vice versa. That is to say, if it cannot run due to a stroke, a stroke can occur due to a blockage, which blockages can also block blood flow to the heart which becomes a heart attack. This can happen, because people who have no family history of stroke can still experience a stroke.
But if you can't walk because of pain, or broken bones, or because of paralysis due to a nervous breakdown, then this could be a separate condition that has nothing to do with the history of a heart attack. Therefore to find out, it would be far better if discussed directly with the doctor who treated him.
But from your side, because the sick person is not yet your family, in fact in medical ethics, doctors are not authorized to convey the results of the examination to you. So if you want to find out, you should ask directly to the person concerned or the child. So, hopefully answering your question.
