Heart Attack

Talking about the symptoms of a heart attack vary from one person to another. You may feel tightness or pain in your chest. This may spread to your arms, neck, jaw, back or stomach. For some people, the pain or tightness is severe, while others may feel nothing more than a mild discomfort.

As well as having chest pain or discomfort you may feel light-headed or dizzy and short of breath. You may also feel nauseous or vomit.

A heart attack occurs if the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section of heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked. If blood flow isn't restored quickly, the section of heart muscle begins to die.

Heart attacks are a leading killer of both men and women but the good news is that excellent treatments are available for heart attacks. These treatments can save lives and prevent disabilities.
