Recognizing Heart Attack Symptoms
Heart attacks may not be like what you see in the movies, sudden and intense. Many heart attacks start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Often people affected aren't sure what's wrong and wait too long before getting help.
Heart Attack Warning Signs
Pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck or back
Feeling weak, lightheaded or faint
Chest pain or discomfort
Pain or discomfort in arms or shoulders
Shortness of breath
Women often report symptoms of discomfort rather than pain.
What to Do:
