One of the main causes of early deaths in the US are heart attacks ! Among the major contributors for this dangerous illness are, the frequent junk food and the stressful lifestyle. The worst thing, is that it became so common over the last years.
Avoiding stressful situations and leading a healthy and balanced lifestyle can be of great help to protect you from heart failure, but what is even more useful, is being aware of the symptoms of heart failure way before it happens.
When the arteries are cramped, your heart starts receiving a lot less blood than it’s used to. Which makes your heart work extremely harder than it normally do, and that gives you the feeling of total fatigue, and you’d find yourself exhausted all the time.
2- Shortness of breath
If your heart is getting less blood, then your lungs won’t be able to inhale their normal amount of oxygen. The two system highly depend on each other, and one’s damage automatically leads to the other’s failure. So if you experiencing any breathing troubles, consult a doctor as soon as possible, because it could mean that the attack is getting closer.
If your body becomes weak so suddenly, it means that the arteries becoming narrower are not allowing proper blood circulation. Thus, your muscles aren’t receiving enough energy, and it may cause you to fall for no reason. You should be very careful.
4- Dizziness and Cold Sweats
When your body is not getting proper circulation, it also restrains the blood flow to your brain. This is highly dangerous. At first, this will cause dizziness and calm. You should pay attention to every little thing happening in your body.
5- Chest Pressure
If you’re experiencing discomfort in your chest, chances are high that you’re having onset symptoms of a heart attack. No matter if the pain is minor or an intense pressure. This will keep on developing until the attack happens.
6- Flu or Cold Symptoms
If you suddenly started having flu symptoms without any obvious reason, it means that the attack is about to happen very soon. Many people thought they were developing a cold just few days before their attacks.
At the appearance of any symptom, please consult a doctor as soon as you can. You can prevent a heart attack if you noticed the symptoms earlier.
