Heart Attack Warning Signs

During a heart attack, minutes matter. Heart attacks are not always sudden and intense. In fact, many start slowly. Warning signs of a heart attack and acute coronary syndrome include:

  • Chest pain (discomfort, pressure, tightness, squeezing, burning or fullness)
  • Pain radiating to arms, neck or jaw
  • Anxiety/fear
  • Profuse sweating

The following symptoms are more common in women:

  • Upper body pain in neck, shoulder, back or stomach
  • Shortness of air
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Indigestion
  • Palpitations
  • Atypical fatigue

If you experience these signs, do NOT wait and do NOT drive. Call 9-1-1 immediately.
