How to recognize a heart attack before it happens

Watch out for these signs that tell you that a heart attack may be imminent

A heart attack medically known as myocardial infarction happens when a blood clot in the heart’s artery blocks flow of blood to the heart muscle which begins to die. While lifestyle changes are vital to prevent a heart attack, watch out for these six signs that you might have a heart attack in a month. It you are experiencing them see your doctor at the earliest.

Warning signs

Fatigue: When the arteries become narrow your heart receives less blood. This makes the heart work harder, leaving you feeling overly tired and drowsy all the time.

Shortness of breath: When your heart is getting less blood this means your lungs get less oxygen. If you have been having trouble breathing it is best to consult a doctor as soon as possible. Fatigue and shortness of breath are more common in women

Weakness: When your body becomes weak, all of a sudden it is because of poor blood circulation. Your muscles aren’t getting what they need, and this could cause you to fall.

Dizziness and sweating: Poor circulation also restricts the blood flow to your brain which can cause dizziness. Sweating more than usual especially if you aren’t exercising or being active – could be an early warning sign of heart problems. Night sweats are also a common symptom for women experiencing heart troubles.

Chest pressure: If you are having onset symptoms of a heart attack chances are you have been experiencing discomfort in your chest. This will constantly increase until the attack itself happens.

Flu or cold symptoms: If you feel as if you are having a cold or flu symptoms out of nowhere, this could be because the attack itself is about to happen within the near future.
