If you know that you are listening to your body and learning to recognize key signals, you can reduce your chances of not getting a heart attack.
Believe it or not, men and women have completely different symptoms of heart disease, and in some women, 30 days before acute myocardial infarction occurs.
Here’s what you need to pay attention and what symptoms indicate that you should schedule a review by an internist or cardiologist.
You are very tired or have a bad dream
If you occasionally feel tired more than usual, even when you do not do anything so exhausting, it can be a warning that the coronary artery seriously narrows down. Reduced blood flow to the heart leads to an increased heart rate, which makes us stoo nervous, and we can not sleep at night.
A short breath
Women who have difficulty breathing have a high risk of heart attack. The point is that respiratory and cardiovascular systems depend on one another. So, when the heart gets less blood, the lungs have less oxygen, and the consequence of all this is the difficulty of breathing.
Dizziness, nausea and vomiting
If you have unexplained drowsiness or cold sweat, you may have had a pre-infarction. This symptom is especially pronounced because blood fails to reach the brain.
An unpleasant feeling in the chest
As the coronary artery is narrower, preventing normal blood flow, it increases the “shelter” in the chest area.
Reduced blood flow leads to the whole body suffering from lack of oxygen. Blood circulation worsens, so muscles can not work normally.
Visit to the doctor is mandatory, which should be directed to the blood test, load test, ultrasound of the heart and lungs in addition to pressure measurement in the ECG. If there are serious indications that something is wrong, they should be sent for angiography.
