Each year in the United States, an estimated 38,000 women younger than 50 years, has a heart attack. Now is the time to learn how to recognize the symptoms you shouldn’t ignore.
1) Shortness of breath / rapid heartbeat
It is difficult to distinguish whether it is a panic attack and a heart attack because the symptoms are almost identical. However, panic attacks may be triggered (although not always) by stressful event and the other signs are trembling, intense fear and a sense of decay. A panic attack usually occurs suddenly and pass within five minutes, but the symptoms of a heart attack tend to start slowly and continue slowly. In this case, you need to immediately seek medical attention.
2) Tingling in hands or feet
While this may mean that you have stretch some nerve, you should see your doctor to rule out the possibility of a heart attack. Specifically, one of the symptoms are numbness in extremities.
The feeling that you are going to faint for no apparent reason (unless you have done a rigorous training or dehydration) may mean that the heart doesn’t receive enough blood. Pay special attention if such a state is accompanied by shortness of breath and cold sweat.
