Why Do People Sweat When Nervous or scared 

Sweat is to cool the body That salty fluid called sweat is your body’s response to rising temperatures. You can get hot when the temperature rises or from burning calories during exercise.

When the “thermostat” in your brain thinks your body’s getting too hot, it sends a message to one set of sweat glands called the eccrine glands. These glands are spread all over your body and release sweat that is about 90% water. Sweating usually starts slowly and builds.

Sweat connected to emotions Stress sweat comes from nervous excitement. It usually hits you all at once. When something excites or scares you, your body releases stress hormones (adrenaline and cortisol). They set your heart to pounding.

न श्वः श्वमुपासीत। को ही मनुष्यस्य श्वो वेद। 

na śvaḥ śvamupāsīta। ko hī manuṣyasya śvo veda।

कल के भरोसे मत बैठो। कर्म करो, मनुष्य का कल किसे ज्ञात है?

Don’t wait for tomorrow, do your karma, Who knows the future of the man?

How a man gets heart attack 

A heart attack occurs when the flow of blood to the heart is blocked. The blockage is most often a buildup of fat, cholesterol and other substances, which form a plaque in the arteries that feed the heart (coronary arteries). Sometimes, a plaque can rupture and form a clot that blocks blood flow.

Begin CPR if the person is unconscious. If you’re with a person who is unconscious, tell the 911 dispatcher or another emergency medical specialist. You may be advised to begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

If you haven’t received CPR training, doctors recommend performing only chest compressions (about 100 to 120 compressions a minute). The dispatcher can instruct you in the proper procedures until help arrives.
