Heart attack: What can happen to you 12 months later

There's one thing that may very well happen to you if you suffer a heart attack, and it's something doctors almost never warn you about

There's one thing that may very well happen to you if you suffer a heart attack, and it's something doctors almost never warn you about.

Within a year after a heart attack, you're twice as likely to suffer severe depression, even if you've never had the problem before.

This, in turn, can increase your chances of angina, a new study has discovered. One in five heart attack patients will go on to suffer angina in the 12 months afterwards. Although depression is a major cause, researchers have discovered that many heart attack patients continue to smoke, which can also cause the angina.
