Men and women, young and old, it is time to grab pen and paper or better yet take a mental picture on how we break down for you the most common indications of a heart attack! Take your time so you can have some clue on it.

1. Unusually heavy pressure on the chest.

Is often describe as having a ton of weight on you and It usually lasts for more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back. The problem is that it can be mistaken for heartburn or indigestion.

2. Sharp upper body pain in the neck, back, and jaw

Ok, ladies I want a close eye here because this signal is more common  for women than it is for men.

3. Severe shortness of breath

It can come on suddenly and occur while you are at rest it can also be accompanied by other symptoms or be the only one.

4. Cold sweats

Unexplained or excessive sweating, or breaking out into a “cold sweat,” can be a sign of heart attack, gals remember to take into consideration if you are going through menopause cold sweats are common so don’t worry!

5. Unusual or unexplained fatigue

Sudden and unusual tiredness or lack of energy is one of the most common in women, are you in shock like me?? This can be easily ignored! It can come on suddenly or be present for days.

6. Unfamiliar dizziness or light-headedness

Unlike in the movies, most heart attacks do not make you pass out right away. Instead, you may suddenly feel dizzy or light-headed.

7. Unexplained nausea (feeling sick to the stomach) or vomiting

Did you know women are twice as likely as men to experience nausea, vomiting, or indigestion during their heart attack. Remember, nausea and vomiting may be signs that something is seriously wrong, especially if you have other symptoms.

If you have any one of these symptoms and it lasts for more than five minutes, call for emergency medical care. Don’t waste time trying home remedies or waiting for the feelings to pass on their own. Remember, quick treatment and prevention can save your life.
