What Are The Symptoms Of A Heart Attack?
What are the top signs or symptoms that you might have had a heart attack? Everyone should get a doctor's advice, but what would you recommend for dealing with a possible heart attack?
Chest pain (usually described as squeezing or pressure, like "an elephant sitting on" your chest), neck pain, nausea, lightheadedness, not feeling just right, denial, (think you are not having a heart attack), left arm pain, diaphoresis (sweating), fainting, irregular heart beat, sudden death - any of the above or nothing (no pain)! First aid is to stop what you are doing, take a nitroglycerin or other vasodilator as prescribed, add oxygen (if available) and get evaluated by a licensed provider asap - do not drive yourself to the hospital/call your dr. - go to the ER via ambulance or second best - have someone drive you.
