What is the difference between a stroke and a heart attack?
A stroke clogs the brain of blood. A heart attack does the same, but to the heart.
Heartburn is an uncomfortable but common feeling of burning or warmth in the chest. Although the pain of heartburn is felt in the chest, heartburn has nothing to do with your …heart. Instead, heartburn is caused by regurgitated stomach acid. A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to part of the heart muscle itself - the myocardium - is severely reduced or stopped. The reduction or stoppage happens when one or more of the coronary arteries supplying blood to the heart muscle is blocked by atherosclerosis.. Note: . It is not necessarily atherosclerosis. AMI can be caused by an embolism or a host of other things.
The cause is vascular with the effect being shown in the heart in one case and the brain in the other
Heart attack means you have one of the blood vessels choked in your heart. This gives rise to some of the part of heart dead. In stroke you usually have the blood supply of th…e brain affected. That gives rise to paralysis of some part of your body, usually.
A heart attack occurs when blood flow to a part of the heart isblocked, usually by a blood clot. Without oxygenated blood, theheart muscle begins to die. A stroke is a brain a…ttack, cutting offvital blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Stroke happens when ablood vessel feeding the brain gets clogged or bursts.
A stroke can not cause a heart attack. They both are similar. Thestroke is caused by problems in the brain. Heart attacks are causedby clots or problems with the heart.

A heart attack clogs up the blood in the heart, while a stroke clogs up the blood in the brain. They are caused by the same thing, really, just in different areas of the body.…

A heart attack is an attack directed at the heart. A stroke is blockage that occurs in a blood vessel in the brain. There is very little difference.Heart attacks happen when b…lood vessels supplying the heart with blood get blocked, leading to cardiac arrest and in extreme cases leading to the death of heart tissue. Strokes happen when blood vessels supplying the brain with blood get blocked, sometimes leading to the death of those cells because they were starved of oxygen. Usually the blockage is caused by a thrombosis (a blood clot) coupled with narrowing and hardening of the vessels because of a build-up of cholesterol.
Actually, stroke can cause heart attacks.
In Conditions and Diseases
A heart attack (myocardial infarction) is the result of a blockage in an artery which feeds the heart, so the heart becomes starved for oxygen.
It would be much more accurate to observe that a stroke is similar to a heart attack, rather than to say that these are the same thing. Both are caused by an interruption in t…he blood supply to a vital organ, and both can be caused by blood clots inside blood vessels.
In Conditions and Diseases
Heart attack refers to damage to the muscle of the heart, usually from a lack of blood flow. Most of the time, a blood clot forms in one of the arteries that supplies the h…eart muscle with blood, blocking the flow of blood. As the heart muscle starves, it begins to die, causing chest pain and other heart attack symptoms . A stroke is a similar blockage in an artery that supplies blood to the brain. When a clot forms in one of those arteries and stops blood flow, a section of the brain begins to die. Stroke symptoms often don't include any pain or discomfort, and are more likely associated with losing feeling or the ability to move. Much of the time, strokes affect only one side of the body. These two terms are so often misunderstood that some in the medical community are attempting to do away with stroke and replace it with the term brain attack. Personally, I doubt it will change. (Besides how difficult it is to do away with a widely accepted medical term, "brain attack" just sounds like the title of a really bad movie.).
In Cardiovascular Health
A heart attack will not cause a person to have slurred speech or facial drooping which are tell-tale signs a stroke is happening. Usually a Heart attack is indicated by pain i…n the chest and upper shoulder area. Both are life and death matters and one needs to know to recognize these indicators quickly so that 911 can be called. Every minute counts.
In The Difference Between
Heart attack occurs when blood flow to a part of the heart is blocked by a blood clot. Without oxygenated blood, the heart muscle begins to die. Stroke is a brain attack…, cutting off vital blood flow and oxygen to the brain. Stroke happens when a blood vessel feeding the brain gets clogged or bursts.
