Here are 4 Major Heart Attack Red Flags You Need to Know:
According to many people swelling in the feet and ankles is connected to sitting or standing too much, however, heart failure can also cause accumulation of fluids, causing swelling in the abdomen, legs, ankles, and feet. This can look like weight gain, but reduces the appetite.
Many people that have experience heart attack state that they had anxiety attacks just before it happened. Although some people with anxiety attack think that they’re having heart attack, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Pain in the other body parts
Many people claim that the pain starts in the chest, and spreads to the jaw, back, shoulder, arms and abdomen. But in some cases there is no chest pain, the pain appears in other body parts such as in the both arms or between the shoulder blades.
Some of the victims will cough bloody phlegm and others have wheezing or nagging cough that sometimes is a symptom of heart failure. This is because of fluid buildup in the lungs. It is very important to pay attention to this symptom or any of the other symptoms.
Other hidden symptoms people can have which are linked to heart attack are:
- Cold sweat;
- Breath shortness;
- Discomfort in the chest;
Do not ignore the symptoms as they will not go away. If they last for more than 5-10 minutes, you have to call the ambulance or ask someone drive you to the near local hospital. You can chew or swallow an aspirin, but if you are allergic to it, do not take it.
