Anxiety is always characterized by an unpleasant state of mental nervousness, apprehension, or uneasiness about the possibility of some uncertain events. Anxiety is a state of agitation and restlessness of the mind when someone is confronted with things he quickly develops a phobia for. As this period, a particular hormone called adrenaline is released to prepare the body for an emergency. This hormone causes an increased flow of blood to the heart and consequently results in the contraction of the heart muscles more harder.
Heart attack, on the other hand, is one of the deadliest health conditions which occurs when there is a sudden interruption of blood to the heart. The interruption might be as a result of the formation of a blood clot in the arteries, and when blood suddenly stopped coming to the heart, there won't be oxygen supply to the heart. Heart attack can be caused by other heart-related problems. Both conditions have similar symptoms ranging from sweating, vomiting, breathlessness, chest pain.
