I had no idea… Pay attention to all, especially the 6th.

Nowadays, many individuals have busy schedules that can lead to stress and health problems. Fast food consumption is common in America and contributes to poor quality of life. Maintaining a healthy weight is a challenge for many Americans, with obesity being a widespread issue.

One of the outcomes of the previously mentioned is a heart failure, also known as a heart attack. In reality, heart attack is the leading cause of death in the United States.

Some studies suggest that our bodies can detect warning signs of an impending heart attack.

Some of the symptoms we should pay attention to and try to treat as fast as possible are the following:

1. Fatigue

Being extremely tired, sleepy, exhausted or lacking energy to perform even the slightest of tasks can be a sign of fatigue. One of the reasons it may affect a person are the lowered levels of blood that go to the heart. This usually takes place when arteries get narrowed. Fatigue can easily happen if someone experiences heart issues.

2. Shortness of breath

    The shortness of breath happens when the lungs don’t get the appropriate levels of oxygen needed for a proper function of the body. If you or someone you know experiences shortness of breath it is for the best to consult a doctor because it may be a sign of a potential heart attack.

    3. Weakness

    If you start experiencing weakness all of a sudden because of a an unknown reason your body might want to remind you to take things slowly and reconsider your lifestyle.

    4. Dizziness and Cold Sweats

    Both dizziness and cold sweats can be a result of poor circulation, something that must not be ignored.

    5. Flu or Cold-like Symptoms

    A great number of people who have experienced heart attack say that they developed flu-like symptoms mere days before the attack took place.

    6. Chest Pressure

    A common symptom of heart attack is the chest pressure one might experience. This pressure will constantly increase until the attack itself happens.

    7. Swollen Feet

    If you have congestive heart failure, one or both of your heart’s lower chambers lose their ability to pump blood effectively. As a result, blood can back up in your legs, ankles and feet, causing edema.
