• Symptoms of a Heart Attack in Tyler

Protecting You From the Symptoms of a Heart Attack

The number one cause of death in the United States is coronary heart disease. That’s why you should know the warning signs and act quickly when symptoms of a heart attack occur. They can be apparent and abrupt for some people, but for most people they begin slowly with mild discomfort and pain. The symptoms of a heart attack include:

  • Pain, pressure, discomfort or heaviness in the chest, arm or below the breastbone
  • Radiating discomfort to the jaw, throat, back or arm
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), palpitations
  • Weakness or shortness of breath
  • Fullness or heartburn
  • Nausea or vomiting

Too many people wait before seeking medical help. Don’t wait. Seek professional medical help as soon as possible.
