8 Signs Your Body Is Telling You Of Having Heart Attack

There are heart attack signals and heart attack symptoms that will surface a month before it will happen. It’s our job to acknowledge them and not ignore them. It could save our lives. Never underestimate the importance of heart health! Keep reading for the top heart attack signs that can occur a month before it will happen.

8. Cold Sweats and Dizziness:

When your body has poor blood circulation, your brain will not receive the proper blood flow that it requires to function properly. This is a sign that you may be in some danger, according to Medicinenet. You should seek medical attention if the cold sweats and dizziness do not subside.

7. Chest Pain or Pressure:

This is one of the most noticeable heart attack signs. It’s called angina. Medicinenet states this is caused when your heart is not getting enough oxygen-rich blood. Many people ignore this symptom because they think it’s just indigestion. But if the pressure is constant, it’s a direct sign that a heart attack may happen. If you feel unusual chest pain or pressure, you may be having heart issues.

6. Weak:

According to the Daily Health Post, if you start to sweat and feel weak, or start experiencing nausea, jaw pain, or heart pain, you might be in danger of having a heart attack. These heart attack symptoms occur because your arteries are starting to narrow. When your arteries become narrow, there is no longer proper blood flow throughout the body. If your heart does not get sufficient, blood, it will fail. Watch for the signals!

5. Flu-Like Symptoms:

If you are in danger of having a heart attack, you may begin to develop flu-like symptoms, says the Daily Health Post. These symptoms include fever, fatigue and chest pain. These symptoms can last between 2 to 10 days. Depending on your age, if you’re an older individual and can’t shake these heart attack symptoms, go see your doctor immediately. Let me be clear though; if you get the flu or a cold, it does not mean you are in danger of having a heart attack, but the symptoms need to be monitored.

4. Chronic Fatigue:

If you are constantly feeling tired and sluggish, and it’s unprecedented, there might be a loss of blood flow to your heart, explains the Daily Health Post. This generally occurs when there is a large buildup of plaque in the arteries that carry the blood to-and-from the heart.

3. Shortness of Breath:

Another organ that suffers from loss of blood flow is the lung. If your lungs do not receive enough blood, you will not be able to breathe enough air. If you don’t breathe enough air, your brain will not be able to receive enough oxygen. Not breathing enough air will result in shortness of breath, according to Medicinenet.

2. Insomnia:

If you are having trouble going to sleep, this can lead to a heart attack. Most people that suffer from insomnia are also suffering from anxiety and depression, says WebMD. Anxiety can increase your blood pressure which can lead to a heart attack. Research has shown that depression and heart attacks are linked, so trying to figure out what’s making you sad could save your life.

1. Stomach Pain: s

It states that if you start to feel abdominal pains such as nausea and bloating, it could be an early sign of a heart attack. It could just as easily be nothing serious, but abdominal pains before a heart attack will leave and return in short periods of time. If you feel both stomach pain and heart pain, you should see a doctor.
