One Month Before a Heart Attack, the Body Warns Through 8 Symptoms

Updated on February 15, 2020

1. Fatigue
Unusual fatigue is one of the main symptoms that indicate a heart attack later in life. This condition affects 70 percent of women than men.

Usually this condition will improve at the end of the day. These symptoms are very clear and will not go unnoticed, for example feeling too tired to do simple tasks, such as making the bed or taking a shower.

2. Abdominal pain
Abdominal pain, nausea, stomach feeling empty or full to bloating are some of the most common symptoms. This symptom is diagnosed in 50 percent of heart attack cases and tends to occur among women and men.

Abdominal pain before a heart attack is episodic, subsides and then returns in a short time. Physical tension can worsen this stomachache.

3. Insomnia
Insomnia is also associated with an increased risk of heart attack or stroke, which affects 50 percent of women. Symptoms include difficulty starting sleep, difficulty maintaining sleep, and difficulty waking up in the morning.

4. Shortness of breath
Shortness of breath is a strong feeling of not being able to take a deep breath. It is diagnosed in 40 percent of heart attack cases, both in men and women.

Usually, this happens up to 6 months before a person has a heart attack, and is a warning sign of a medical condition. When you experience it, you can not seem to get enough air, dizziness, and feeling short of breath

5. Hair loss
Hair loss is also considered an indicator of the risk of heart disease. This condition affects men over the age of 50, but some women may also be in a risk group.

In this case, baldness is associated with increased levels of the hormone cortisol. So, it never hurts to pay attention back to your hair loss.

6. Irregular heartbeat
Irregular heart rhythms or arrhythmias are often accompanied by panic attacks and anxiety, especially among women.

This occurs unexpectedly with two different conditions, namely arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) or tachycardia (increased heart rate).

Physical exercise may provide extra stimulation to increase heart rate, especially in cases with atherosclerotic disease.

When experiencing it, an irregular heartbeat may last for 1-2 minutes. If it doesn't go away, you might feel dizzy and very tired. Contact a doctor immediately.

7. Excessive sweating
Unusual or excessive sweating is an early warning sign of a heart attack.

This might happen at any time, day or night. This symptom is more common in women and is usually confused with hot flashes or night sweats typical of menopause.

Symptoms that occur are also flu-like, the skin becomes moist, or sweats regardless of the temperature or physical activity your hyang is doing. Sweating can also be excessive at night.

8. Chest pain
Men and women experience chest pain in various intensities and shapes
