Be Alert from Symptom of Heart Attack

invc,, If you aren't sure whether you are having heartburn or something more serious -- like a heart attack -- you should get yourself checked out, said Dr K K Aggarwal President, Heart Care Foundation of India and Editor eMedinewS.

The most common symptom of coronary heart disease is chest pain (angina) or discomfort, which can also occur in the shoulders, arms, neck, jaw or back. People may mistake this pain for indigestion, which can be dangerous.

Sometimes, it's impossible to tell the difference between the symptoms of heartburn, angina and heart attack, said Dr. Aggarwal.

A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to part of the heart muscle is severely reduced or stopped. This can result in death or disability, depending on how much of the heart muscle is damaged. Unfortunately, many people may not be aware they are having a heart attack.

There are some useful pointers that might help a person know whether they're having a heart attack or not, but when in doubt, check it out," said Dr Aggarwal.

Symptoms of a heart attack include the sudden onset of tightness, pressure, squeezing, burning or discomfort in the chest, throat, neck or either arm. When these symptoms are accompanied by nausea, vomiting, sweating, shortness of breath or a fainting sensation, Dr. Aggarwal says one should be especially suspicious that you might be having a heart attack. People who have any risk factors that may predispose them to a heart attack should be particularly cautious.

Main points

1.      Heart attack pain is never pinpointed

2.      Heart attack pain never lasts less than 30 seconds.

3.     If you smoke, have diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, are overweight or have a strong family history of heart disease and have any symptom related to the chest or heart, you should be alert.

I was basically wanting to know if you ever thought of adjusting the page layout of your site? It is well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you can include a little more in the way of content so people can connect to it better. You have got a great deal of wording for only having one or two photos. Maybe you can space it out better?

I was wondering if you ever considered modifying the page layout of your blog? It is very well written; I really like what youve got to say. But maybe you could create a little more in the way of written content so people could connect to it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you can space it out better?

My brother and I were just debating this very topic, he's invariably trying to prove me completely wrong. Your own view on this is fantastic and just how I truly feel. I just now e mailed my brother this site to show him your perspective. Right after overlooking your weblog I saved and will be coming back to read your updates!
