Recognize These 5 Heart Attack Symptoms One Month Ahead
(HealthAndLovePage) We all know that the symptoms related to a heart attack can be recognized right before the heart attack (myocardial infarction) occurs. This attack is usually abrupt and happens without any warning and this is one of the main reasons for the fatalities related to this medical condition.
However, only a small number of people is aware that we can actually notice some subtle small clues to an upcoming heart attack and these signs occur even days before it actually happens.
The accumulation of plaque in the coronary artery is the main reason that leads to heart attacks. Such occurrence will disrupt the proper supply of blood in this system and after a while you can expect the attack.
During the heart attack a tissue dies because of the improper blood circulation and the patient witnesses an agonizing pain and strong pressure in this area.
In case the individual is alone and there is no medical person around this death of the tissue can result in death. In this article you can read about the common symptoms that can indicate the possibility of heart attack that could occur within a short period of time.
Heart Attack Symptoms
1. Shortness of breath
In case you have difficulties catching a proper breath, there is a chance that you will experience heart attack in the near future. When the blood flow to the heart is not regular, this means that the lungs receive less oxygen and the final result is shortness of breath. The respiratory system and the cardiovascular system are closely related, so this can definitely be a sign of a heart attack.
2. Continuous fatigue
Once the plaque starts to clog the coronary artery you will start to get less blood in the heart, which will make your heart muscle work with difficulties and this will result in a continuous fatigue.
3. Cold sweats or/and frequent feeling of dizziness
In case you are developing all the symptoms that lead to heart attack, chances are that you will experience odd occurrences of dizziness and/or cold sweats. The worsened blood circulation in the cardiovascular system limits the amount of blood that reaches the brain and leads to a feeling of dizziness and clamminess. This is especially noticeable when you get up from your bed or chair rapidly.
4. Unpleasant feeling in the chest
The lower amount of oxygen present in the heart muscle because of the poor blood flow can lead to discomfort in the chest. This pain gradually increases until the individual experiences a heart attack.
5. Feeling of weakness
What can we do?
In case you notice some of the previously mentioned symptoms or a combination of these symptoms, you should consult your doctor as soon as possible. These are serious signs that usually suggest an imminent occurrence of heart attack. There are few things that you can do to prevent this attack.

Don’t hesitate to perform a check-up whenever you notice that your body is acting strangely.Via Harvard Health Publishing
