    Not very common, but I work with heart patients and people as young as 30 can get heart attacks - usually due to genetics. Get yourself checked ASAP if you think you're having a heart attack.

  • No. Not at all. Almost every person that experiences a heart attack is over the age of 55. Very rarely a victim will be younger however it's because they were probably either born with heart problems or they abuse drugs and/or alcohol (including cigarettes). As long as someone doesn't smoke, drinks in moderation, lives an active lifestyle and eats at least half way healthy, they should be just fine. No early heart attack. I hope this answer helps you!

    People in their thirties generally do not experience a heart attack however it is a possibility.and there could be various factors that can lead to a heart attack at an early age.

    * Substance abuse or excessive alcohol use

    * Smoking

    * High blood pressure

    * High cholesterol levels

    * Lack of physical activity

    * Diabetes

    * Poor diet

    If your family has a history of heat attacks then that could also be a major factor in your case. Blk Hospital is a super speciality hospital where you can get your problem diagnosed at the earliest, having a heart attack at an early age can be a serious issue and should not be ignored at any point.

    No, they are not common. The cause can be different than the arterial plaque blockage of a classic heart attack. They are more likely due to an undiscovered congenital anomaly, cocaine use, recreational drug use, etc Cardiac arrest and heart attack are not the same thing remember.

    Heart attacks can strike at any age—and they're twice as likely to be fatal for young women than men. When you picture the typical heart attack patient, it's probably an older man clutching his arm and grimacing in pain. ... And remember, women can suffer from heart attacks even when they're in their 20s and 30s.


    Just like high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels in your 20s, 30s and 40s raise your risk for heart disease and stroke. Obesity, lack of physical exercise and a poor diet are often the culprits.

    Well, that dude was really overweight. He had a high energy personality and maybe his body couldn't take it.
