4 signs that anticipate a heart attack
Contrary to popular belief that heart attacks are not something that happens overnight, they can signal that they will happen for days or even months before and can be avoided if treated correctly.
Cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, smoking and family history are some of the factors that potentiate a person’s chances of having a heart attack.
This attack can happen and generate many symptoms, going far beyond the chest pains, which in some cases do not even happen.
A heart attack, called by myocardial infarction doctors, occurs when some coagulated blood creates a blood flow barrier for a heart muscle, causing a blockage in the blood circulation.
Check out four signs that anticipate a heart attack and how to identify them so you can avoid it as fast as possible.
1. Chest pain
It is the most present symptom that indicates a possible infarction of the heart.
It can come in two ways when linked to heart attack.
The first is when pain spreads throughout the body.
The second one is a more localized pain, limiting the left central part of the body, being able to reach the left arm and the side of the rib.
Both pains may be more intense or milder, and may occur at long or short intervals of time.
2. Shortness of breath
It is another very frequent factor and directly linked to a heart attack.
It can happen on its own, without the pain in the chest and still be referring to a future heart attack.
It may appear both before and during or after.
It is necessary to seek medical advice when this symptom occurs.
3. Nausea and vomiting
Another symptom that is always present in patients who have reported what predated the heart attack.
Usually nausea and vomiting also occur moments before the heart attack and are always accompanied by other symptoms, never alone.
4. Poor digestion or heartburn:
Symptoms that also appear linked to others.
The nerve cells in the stomach are very close to the heart, which causes these two situations, heartburn and heart attack, to be confused.
