BODY WARNS YOU BEFORE A HEART ATTACK | 5 SILENT SIGNS OF A HEART ATTACK


5 Silent Signs of a Heart Attack. 1- Soreness in the back, arms, or chest
Noticeable pain or soreness in the back, chest, or either arm is often a silent heart attack
sign. When heart muscle cells begin to run out of
oxygen during a heart attack because of a blocked artery preventing oxygenated blood
from feeding that muscle, they begin to send off pain signals through the nervous system. Your brain may confuse those nerve signals
with signals coming from the arm (or the jaw, shoulder, elbow, neck or upper back) because
of the nerve proximity. 2- Shortness of breath If a flight of stairs up from the subway is
usually no problem, but suddenly you find yourself gasping for air at the top, it could
signal a heart attack. If you feel short of breath right after waking
up, that’s also a sign that something could be wrong. 3- Heartburn or belching If you have an occasional heartburn flare-up
after a heavy pizza lunch, it’s probably nothing to worry about, but if it’s out of the ordinary
or heartburn has never bothered you before, call your doctor because it could signal a
heart attack. Angina, a heartburn-like chest pain, is caused
by lack of blood flow to the heart, which is what happens during a heart attack. 4- Fatigue
Some women who have heart attacks feel extremely tired, even if they’ve been sitting still
for a while or haven’t moved much. “Patients often complain of a tiredness in the chest,” Goldberg says. “They say that they can’t do simple activities,
like walk to the bathroom.” 5- Stomach upset Heart attack symptoms can sometimes mimic
stomach problems like nausea, vomiting, or overall GI upset—especially in women.
