How To Recognize A Heart Attack One Month Before It Happens

In the United States alone, heart attacks
are one of the leading causes of death throughout the country. Knowing the signs and symptoms of heart disease
and a heart attack can help save a life. Some of these symptoms begin showing up as
early as a month in advance. Heart attacks are serious medical conditions. They occur when the body’s supply of blood
is blocked, normally caused by a blood clot. These occur when there is plaque build-up
in the coronary arteries. The heart attack is dead tissue that is killed
off during the process of blood loss. This tissue causes extreme pain and squeezing,
which are both felt at the time of the heart attack. Heart attacks are common in people who have
a high amount of stress, who are heavy smokers or who are morbidly overweight. However, regardless of the contributing factors,
heart attacks are the number one killers of women across all spectrums. Therefore, it is important to learn the signs
and symptoms of a heart attack, as well as to receive regular check-ups from a doctor. Today’s video will discuss the warning signs
of a heart attack and what to look out for. 1. Chest pressure This is the symptom that most people are familiar
with. Most people will feel pressure pushing on
their chest. This is a concrete sign that a heart attack
is about to occur. A lot of people may ignore this pain, thinking
that it is a normal feeling. However, ignoring this sign can cost someone
their life. They should receive immediate medical attention
if they are experiencing any hard pressure on their upper chest. 2. Cold Sweats and Dizziness When the body does not circulate blood properly,
the brain will not receive the proper amount of blood. This is a huge issue and the patient should
receive medical attention immediately. 3. Cold and Flu Symptoms After a heart attack, many patients report
experiencing cold or flu symptoms leading up to the days prior to the attack. If these symptoms are felt, the patient should
seek medical treatment right away. 4. Weakness When the body feels weak, sweaty or nauseous,
there may be trouble along the way. Jaw pain is another alarming sign. As the arteries in the body continue to narrow,
the blood stops flowing throughout the body properly. 5. Shortness of Breath When the body does not receive sufficient
blood, the lungs are also negatively affected. If the lungs do not receive enough blood or
oxygen, the body struggles to breathe properly. If the patient experiences any trouble breathing,
they should be seen by a doctor right away to be checked out. 6. Fatigue If someone is feeling drowsy and tired most
of the time, it could be caused by an improper blood flow to the heart. This could happen as a result of plaque build-up
in the arteries. Again, this should be checked out by a medical
professional right away.

  17. I am going to see a cardiologist in a couple weeks because recently I went to the ER for heart problems, trouble breathing, chest pain, pain in my left arm and my heart was fluttering like crazy. At first the nurses laughed and made fun of me saying in 22 and "it's probably anxiety" .. Then after doing a CT scan and echo they got very serious faced telling me they're not sure what it is but my heart beats aren't normal, so they gave me metoprolol and I feel like this isn't helping the greatest. Yes it does help, but I still get these attacks, and as I'm typing I'm getting pain in my left arm. I don't want to go to the hospital again because they're stupid and probably wouldn't know what it is anyways, and would make fun of me. What should I do? Wait out the 2 weeks before I see my doctor? It's very hard to get through the day feeling like this.
