  • Heart attacks are nothing to mess with and if you are experiencing one, you need to seek medical help as soon as possible.

    Sometimes it can be hard to determine if you are suffering from a heart attack or a less-serious health problem.

    Since time is of the essence when you are experiencing a heart attack, it is important to know the symptoms so you know when to get help.

    Chest Discomfort
    One of the most common symptoms of a heart attack is chest discomfort. Sufferers may feel pain, heaviness, tightening or pressure in the chest. Some heart attack sufferers also report these feelings in their arms or right below their breastbone.

    Pain In The Jaw
    Some people who have suffered from heart attacks have reported feeling pain in or around their jaws. This symptom seems to be more common in women and the pain can also be felt in the throat or radiating to the back and arms.

    Sweating
    Many people begin sweating profusely during a heart attack and also report feeling dizzy and nauseated. Some people also feel as though they may pass out.

    Rapid Heartbeat
    A rapid heartbeat as well as an irregular heartbeat could be a sign of a heart attack if it is experienced with any of the other symptoms. While it’s not uncommon to experience a rapid heart beat during certain situations, one brought on by a heart attack will happen suddenly.

    These are some of the most common symptoms of a heart attack, but everyone is different and could experience a variety of different symptoms. If you ever feel like you might be experiencing a heart attack, it is important to get to a hospital or dial 911 as soon as possible. The faster you get treatment, the better your chances of survival.
