Symptoms of MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION(heart attack)
Most common symptoms of heart attack are:
- A feeling of pressure, fullness or a squeezing pain in the center of your chest that lasts for more than a few minutes
- Chest pain extending to your shoulder, arm, back, or even to your teeth and jaw
- Frequent episodes of chest pain
- Prolonged pain in the upper abdomen
- Shortness of breath
- Impending sense of doom
- Nausea and vomiting
Women patients have different or atypical signs and symptoms of heart attack, which include:
- Pain in abdomen or heartburn
- Cold Clammy skin
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Unusual or unexplained fatigue
Symptoms of heart attack may vary. All patients of heart attack do not experience the same symptoms or experience them to the same degree. Another interesting feature is that many heart attacks aren't as dramatic as the ones you've seen on TV. In some patients, there are no symptoms at all. Still, the more signs and symptoms you have, the greater the likelihood that you may be having a heart attack.
The timing of heart attack is not fixed and it can occur at any time of the day— at work or play, while you're resting, or while you're in motion. In some patients heart attacks strike suddenly, but many people who experience a heart attack have warning signs and symptoms hours, days or weeks in advance. Most common and earliest warning of a heart attack may be recurrent chest pain (angina) that's triggered by exertion and relieved by rest. A temporary decrease in blood flow to the heart causes angina.
