So here are the four symptoms:
1. Chest Pain
This is the most common symptom which explains why most of us would
probably put this as the #1 symptom we associate with heart attack.
However there are several types of chest pain. First, a pain
that’s all over the chest. Another that starts just off to the left
side or the center of the chest and another that can start in the jaw
and radiate down the left arm. This pain can occur at different
intervals and with varying intensities.
2. Shortness of breath.
Even in the absence of chest pain, shortness of breath can also signal
an impending heart attack.Shortness of breath
can occur suddenly right before or even during a heart attack.
Indigestion or “heartburn”.
Sometimes the chest pain of a heart attack
is perceived as something else, like indigestion.This
could be because the nerves of the stomach are close to the heart which
can cause “Signal confusion” in our brain.
4. Nausea and
This can occur alone or in combination with some of the other
symptoms.While we typically don’t think of this
as being a heart attack symptom, it is not unusual at all.
