There are clear symptoms of a heart attack that require immediate medical attention.
A feeling of pressure, tightness, pain, crushing, squeezing, or aching in the chest or arms. The pain spreads to the neck, jaw, or back can be a sign that you’re having a heart attack.
The following are other possible signs and symptoms of a heart attack occurring:
- crushing chest pain
- epigastric pain
- difficulty in breathing
- a feeling of terror that life is ending
- feeling awful, generally
- feeling clammy and sweaty
Changing position does not alleviate the pain of a heart attack. The pain you feel is normally constant, although it may sometimes come and go.
WHAT TO DO??
In case of chest discomfort do not hesitate to seek medical attention.
