Heart attack symptoms are caused by a lack of blood flowing to the organ. Medics have listed the five most common signs of the condition, including chest pain and unexplained sweating.
A heart attack can be a symptom of coronary artery disease, when fatty deposits build up in the arteries, limiting the amount of blood flowing to the heart. There are many symptoms of a heart attack and they tend to differ in men and women, and they show up differently in people. But the most common sign is chest pain. This pain may spread to the upper half of the body and even to the arms. Excessive sweating and unexplained nausea may occur. Some people may feel very dizzy or very tired.
“During a heart attack, the blood supply that feeds oxygen to the heart stops, and the heart muscle begins to die off. Some people with a heart attack have warning signs of this condition, while others have none,” the medical report said.
Reducing the risk of a heart attack can be done through small changes in diet and lifestyle. To reduce fat deposits in the arteries, you should balance your diet. It is also advised to spend at least 150 minutes of exercise every week.
