Heart attacks are not usually indicated by obvious signs, such as the infamous “Hollywood” heart attack, in which a person clutches at his or her heart dramatically.
In fact, about 25% of all heart attacks occur silently – meaning there are no clear or recognizable symptoms. These silent heart attacks are frequently fatal, particularly because many people delay or fail to seek medical treatment on time.
Dr. Chauncey Crandall, one of America’s leading cardiologists, has spent decades working to prevent, minimize, and reverse heart disease. Over this time, Dr. Crandall has come to recognize that the heart does usually warn people of a potential heart attack minutes, days, or even weeks before the event.
- Pain in other parts of the body
Common or traditional signs you should be aware of:
- Chest discomfort
- Shortness of breath
- Cold sweat
Note: Do not try to ignore these symptoms, hoping that they will go away. If your symptoms last more than 5 or 10 minutes, call someone drive you to the nearest hospital. You can also chew and swallow an aspirin, unless you are allergic to them.
