No, all you need is some kind of obstruction in the blood vessels feeding the heart muscle. This could be something like a clot or plaques from high cholesterol.

High Blood pressure is Critical Marker or Heart disease.However you can have a heart attack ( and Silent one also) without High BP.Any obstruction , clot , rupture in heart blood vessels will disrupt blood flow to heart muscle and it can die . This is Myocardial Infarction --MI or Heart attack.BP will go up and remain high till the clot is removed or otherwise.Speaking from Experience--Join on FB--happy Heart--
