It is well know that the symptoms of a heart-attack can be exposed just before the heart-attack (myocardial infarction). The heart attack can be surprising and almost without a caution, and that’s why it is one of the deadliest medical conditions. Anyway, many people don’t know that they can detect the signs of an upcoming heart attack even a month before it actually occurs.
Heart-attack is a result of the plaque storage into the coronary artery. That will lead to insufficient blood supply and finally to heart attack. When a heart attack happens a tissue dies which is caused by decreased blood flow and the person will face with an extreme pain and crushing pressure. The death of a tissue can result with death, if there isn’t any medical person that could prevent the attack. Now you can read about the symptoms that can warn you about a possible heart attack that could occur in the near future. These symptoms can point an upcoming attack even a month before it occurs.
Excessive FatigueWhen the coronary artery is straitening, the heart doesn’t get enough blood, which leads to much difficult muscle work than usual and that’s why you are feeling tired.
Shortness of BreathIf you are experiencing difficulties with catching breath, maybe you are at risk of an upcoming heart attack. While the heart doesn’t get enough blood, less oxygen is delivered to the lungs, which will lead to shorter breath. Due to the fact that the cardiovascular and respiratory systems are depending on one another, this is a serious symptom of an upcoming attack.
WeaknessWith a decreased blood flow, the body lacks in oxygen and you are feeling much weaker than usual. This is a result from the artery straitening which decelerates the blood circulation and the muscles will don’t get enough blood.
Dizziness and/or Cold SweatsIf you are facing cold sweats or stagger, you are having a high risk of heart attack. The improper cardiac circulation limits the blood flow to the brain, which will lead to stagger and clamminess, particularly when you get up fast of your bed or chair.
Discomfort in the ChestDiscomfort in the chest could be result from the insufficient oxygen to the heart muscle, which is caused from the reduced blood flow.
What to Do?If you are facing any of the symptoms listed above, or some of them combined, you should visit your doctor as soon as possible. All of these signs are pointing to upcoming attack, and you should react on the symptoms because it is the best way to prevent it.
The symptoms in women are much subtler than in men, and they are often detected too late. That is one more reason why women should visit their doctor more often for a complete control. If you notice that your body behaves strangely, make the needed tests, particularly if your family has a history of heart ailments. There are many people who were treated for anxiety, but later it proved to be a heart attack.
