Lately my mind has been on heart disease, and i just want to know what my risks are. I just recently have had slight pain in my left shoulder- kinda like I worked it hard the day before, or bumped it,...
Organ failure causes multiple organ failure...Everything in your body is linked together, it all has to work together and support the functions of one another to function properly and maintain balance. If you become ill, or a certain area of your body isn't getting what it needs you will have one organ fail...once one organ fails, the other start to shut down as well. It's like a domino effect. Everything starts at the cellular level, if you can keep every cell healthy and full of oxygen, you wont' have any failure...but cell breakdown/failure, leads to tissue breakdown/failure...tissue breakdown leads to organ failure...
Many things can cause this, as it often occurs in the last stage of life. Diabetes, stroke, poisoning, alcohol overdose, drug overdose, kidney failure, etc.
One that has not been mentioned is C.A.P.S. or Catastrophic Antiphospholipid Syndrome.
Any number of things can cause that. Drugs, cancer, leukemia, you name it. What is the situation on which you are referring?
