How To Read Heart Attack Symptoms

Heart attach is not a jock! It’s an issue synonymous with `urgency and immediate help. Whether it is about calling ambulance or inhaling sprays until medical help arrives the action has to be immediate. The issue here is to learn to read the signs right. Is the chest pain due to gas or is it really a heart attack?

In some cases heart attacks are sudden and intense and the signs point towards it while person is undergoing it, but sometimes, actually many a times heart attacks take a slow start, where the patient experiences a mild pain or discomfort. And this is where things go wrong mostly especially the delay in calling for medical help.

People experiencing it or around the person undergoing it aren’t sure about the signs and wait a bit too long before dialing their doctor’s number and seeking help.

Men and women both undergo almost similar symptoms like discomfort in the chest but women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms attached to heart attack. Especially breathlessness or shortness of breath, back or jaw pain, nausea/vomiting etc.

I have listed the most common symptoms below attached to heart attack.

Discomfort in the chest. In majority of heart attack cases people experience discomfort in the center of the chest, which lasts for more than a few minutes, or pain that keeps coming and going.

Sometimes the feeling can also be like that of an uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain. Another symptom is Discomfort in other nearby areas of the upper body.

Like pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, even jaw or stomach. Third symptom is Shortness of breath. These symptoms may occur with or without chest discomfort. A patient experiencing heart attack can also include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheaded.

If you yourself undergo these symptoms or some one around you goes through it its time to call the doctor without wasting any time further.
