Know the Warning Signs of Heart Attack
A heart attack often starts with extreme pain or tightness in the chest, but symptoms vary between individuals, and they don’t always resemble Hollywood dramatizations. This video contains real-life accounts from heart attack survivors.
During a heart attack, pain can spread to the back, arms, shoulders, and even the legs. It may be persistent or intermittent over a short period of time, and may or may not be accompanied by shortness of breath, nausea, or dizziness. Receiving immediate medical attention will reduce the likelihood and severity of heart damage.
