Do You Know the Signs of a Heart Attack? Find Out Now! by Donna John

Do You Know the Signs of a Heart Attack? Find Out Now!

American Heart Month used to be a reminder to wear red – until my husband had a heart attack. Now, it’s a time I want to help educate people on heart attacks and heart health. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), some heart attacks are sudden and intense, and some come on slowly with mild discomfort. Here are the signs to look for!

  • chest discomfort (squeezing, fullness or pain)
  • discomfort in other areas of the body (arms, back, neck, jaw or stomach)
  • shortness of breath
  • other signs may include sweating, nausea or lightheadedness

Always call 911!
