Heart attack symptoms


Chest pain or discomfort: Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center or left side of the chest. It can feel like pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain that lasts for a few minutes or comes and goes.


Fatigue: Unusual or extreme tiredness, weakness, or fatigue, even without exertion, can occur during a heart attack.


Upper body pain: Pain or discomfort may extend beyond the chest to the arms (especially the left arm), back, neck, jaw, or even the stomach.

Shortness of breath: Feeling breathless or having difficulty breathing, often accompanied by chest discomfort.


Dizziness or lightheadedness: Feeling dizzy or lightheaded, sometimes accompanied by fainting or feeling like you might pass out.


Nausea and vomiting: Some people experience feelings of nausea, indigestion, or vomiting during a heart attack.



Anxiety or fear: A sense of impending doom, anxiety, or fear can be experienced before or during a heart attack.


Cold sweat: Profuse sweating, often described as a cold and clammy sweat, can be a sign of a heart attack.


Irregular heartbeat: Heart palpitations or an irregular heartbeat, known as arrhythmia, can be a symptom of a heart attack.


It’s important to note that not everyone experiences the same symptoms, and symptoms can vary between men and women. If you or someone else is experiencing any of these symptoms, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention by calling emergency services.
