i don't think so.. don't worry about it you're too young.. but if you still have doubts go see a doctor (:

ps: you're too skinny

Yes, several reasons could cause it including faulty heart valves, undiagnosed abnormalities and rhythms.

yes you can, and like someone already pointed out if you are anorexic then yes you are high risk for heart attack. starving the heart muscle into death of the muscle verses plaque build up in the blood vessels.

Captain Gaga
A heart attack occurs when blood flow to a section of heart muscle becomes blocked. If the flow of blood isn’t restored quickly, the section of heart muscle becomes damaged from lack of oxygen and begins to die.

Now, this happens usually with people with bad arteries due to not having a good diet. That's why obese people, and the elderly mostly have it. Oh and CAD patients. Your body is young, (though you weigh lightly for your age, are you under 5'0?) it's not likely it'd happen. Though if you were morbidly obese, yes. It can't just appear out of nowhere, there has to be something wrong with you, and arteries, for a heart attack to occur.

This is my opinion lol, I'm not doctor. :(

Your family history of heart attacks will make a difference when you are older, but right now, unless you have an UNhealthy heart, you should be okay. As you get older, just make sure to eat healthy and exercise--this will decrease your chance of getting the risk factors that cause a heart attack.

I have seen kids younger then you have heart attacks, but they didn't have healthy hearts.

Family history won't play a role until you're older, so no worries for now! Just live and have fun =)

naw, just don't worry about it!

yeah you can.

after one too many energy drinks and a hard workout maybe

Mr. Awesome
88 lbs?!

If you're anorexic, there is a good chance of having a heart attack.

Aaron R
yes, but i highly doubt you will. your heart would have to be in pretty bad shape for that to happen.

Miss Ann Thrope
Heart attacks do not discriminate when it comes to age.

Laurence W
Learn how cardiac arteries are damaged by improper diet and exercise, lifestyle, and stress, and time.

Make very bad food choices every meal, every day, and be highly stressed, and a person may make it happen at a youngish age. For the average person not trying to force it, a heart attack does kill occasionally in the 30's, extremely rarely in the 20's.

With the right diet, exercise, lifestyle, etc, you should live well into your 90's or even to 100, and can be as healthy and as happy as you care to be until your last few months, possibly to the very end.

Don't worry, be happy. Eat well, be active. You can outlive them all if you like. Have friends, be a friend.
