Findings in the European Heart Journal concluded that people who become very afraid of dying in the moments during and days after a heart attack seem to have more inflammation.

That could be an indicator that they may in the long run do worse than patients who are less fearful.

Researchers say doctors must address not only the body issues but the mind issues as well.
