Symptoms & Warning Signs of a Heart Attack

About 805,000 people in the United States have a heart attack each year. (Source) Blood flow to your heart that is restricted because of a blockage of fat, cholesterol, or plaque buildup in your arteries can lead to a heart attack. A heart attack can strike without any warning at all, or you may experience recurrent symptoms for hours, days, or even weeks in advance. Common symptoms and warning signs of a heart attack can include:

  • A pressure or tightness in your chest or arms that spreads to your neck, jaw, or back (angina)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Abdominal pain
  • Heartburn/indigestion
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Cold sweats/sweating
  • Lightheaded/dizziness
  • Fainting or loss of consciousness
  • Fatigue

Not all patients who have a heart attack will experience all of these symptoms, and they can vary greatly in their severity. If you suspect you may be suffering from a heart attack, act fast. It’s always better to err on the side of caution when it comes to your heart.

Symptoms of Congestive Heart Failure

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a chronic condition in which the heart muscle is weakened or damaged, leading to an inability of the heart to pump blood effectively. The symptoms of congestive heart failure can vary depending on the severity of the condition and the specific underlying causes. Common symptoms of congestive heart failure can include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Swelling (edema)
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Persistent cough or wheezing
  • Decreased appetite and nausea
  • Increased urination at night

Symptoms of High Blood Pressure/Hypertension

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is a condition where the force of blood against the walls of the arteries is consistently too high. It is often referred to as the “silent killer” because it typically does not cause noticeable symptoms. However, some people with high blood pressure may experience certain signs that can indicate the condition. Common symptoms of high blood pressure or hypertension can include:

  • Headaches
  • Shortness of breath
  • Visual changes
  • Chest pain
  • Dizziness
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Fatigue
