You might think you know what a heart attack looks like, but heart attacks don’t always stick to the script as they’re depicted in movies and television. Time is imperative when it comes to a heart attack. So knowing the classic symptoms of a heart attack, as well as less common symptoms, can help lessen damage and potentially save your life.
Classic heart attack symptoms include:
- Chest discomfort or pain in the upper chest
- Pressure in the chest. Many people describe it as something “sitting” on their chest.
- Pain in the left arm or sometimes up the right arm
- Pain between the shoulder blades
- Unexplained sweating
- Nausea or vomiting
- Lightheadedness or dizziness.
It’s important to know that symptoms of a heart attack can be very different in men versus women. Learn more about the symptoms women experience most, so you can be prepared.
