heart attack signs and symptoms

The best-known symptoms of heart attack, like heavy pressure in the chest is scary for many people, but only a few of them know that a third of the patients who experience a heart attack don’t feel any pain at all in the chest.

The most important thing in avoiding heart attack is to try to lead a healthy lifestyle and also try to decrease the levels of stress you experience in your life. Anyhow, here are some of the symptoms that are very casual and are most commonly not associated with heart attack, but you will have to go to the hospital anyways.

· Fatigue

If you feel drowsy or overtired all of the time, you better hurry visit your doctor. When the arteries narrow, you heart receives a lot less blood than usually used to which means it has to work a lot harder than normally.

· Shortness of breath

In addition to this, when your heart gets less blood it means that your lungs are not going to be able to get as much oxygen as they normally need.

· Weakness

If and when your arteries do not distribute the amount of blood your body normally does need, in that case many complications occur and muscles are not getting what they need. This in turn can cause you to fall even if it seems like any usual thing, so be very careful.

· Dizziness and cold sweats

Never ignore signs like this because this would most probably mean that your brain is not getting enough blood.

· Chest pressure

If you are experiencing onset symptoms of a heart attack, in this case you will probably experience discomfort in your chest and this situation will constantly increase as the heart attack itself happens.

· Flu or cold symptoms

This one could be a sign as well, due to the fact that these flu or cold symptoms appear few days before the attack. All of these are signs that you should not ignore and definitely deserve that you pay a visit to the doctor.
