Heart Attack Symptoms And Warning Signs

Heart Attack Symptoms And Warning Signs

The month of February is often associated with cupid, love and hearts so I thought it was also a good time to brush up on the signs of a heart attack. The information below is taken from the American Heart Association’s website – http://www.heart.org.  Please visit their website for more comprehensive information on all things related to your heart!

Warning Signs of a Heart Attack

Don’t wait to get help if you experience any of these heart attack warning signs. Some heart attacks are sudden and intense. But most start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Pay attention to your body and call 911 if you experience:

  • Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes – or it may go away and then return. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.

  • Discomfort in other areas of the upper body. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.

  • Shortness of breath. This can occur with or without chest discomfort.

  • Other signs. Other possible signs include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness

As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and back or jaw pain.
