Warning Signs of Heart Attack

Part of the Heart Disease For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Acknowledging the warning signs of a heart attack can be clouded by fear, denial, or unawareness. If you experience warning signs of a heart attack — even if you've never had any sign of heart trouble — call 911 and go straight to the hospital for prompt evaluation. Remember, the warning signs can be any or all of the ones listed here:

  • Uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing, or pain in the center of the chest lasting more than a few minutes

  • Pain spreading to the shoulders, neck, or arms

  • Chest discomfort with lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, nausea, or shortness of breath
