Influencer says she had a heart attack after attempting a TikTok trend

dangerous TikTok challenges have gone viral over recent months, but the latest trend almost became deadly after a 20-year-old influencer said it triggered a heart attack. The craze is called "dry scooping" and involves swallowing pre-workout powder, which has an energizing effect, instead of diluting it with water. TikTok user and OnlyFans creator Briatney Portillo said in a now-viral post that she "had a heart attack" after giving the trend a shot. after dry scooping her pre-workout powder, she started feeling itchy and tingly. A quick Google search revealed that it's not an unusual reaction, so she went on with her workout. She said she started to feel nauseous and light-headed, so she went home to take a shower, then headed to work. At work, things started to get worse again. "The pain went to my back and to my left arm, and my left arm went slightly limp, so I knew those were symptoms of a heart attack. I called 9-1-1, and the ambulance came". At the hospital, Portillo went through a series of tests, which ultimately determined that she had an NSTEMI, which is a type of heart attack that's less damaging to the heart. Portillo is now recovering and said she wanted to get her story out to raise awareness
