Being a leap year, there is one extra day this year to put your heart first. The reason heart disease is the #1 cause of death in Canada is because so many people ignore the symptoms.
1. Not all heart attacks cause chest pain, though an ache or mild discomfort, burning, squeezing or a sensation of pressure in the chest can be an indicator. Also – the pain may be present for a few minutes or hours and then subside, leading the person to believe that they are fine.
2. Persistent coughing or wheezing can be a symptom of heart failure.
3. Unusual fatigue can be another symptom of heart failure. Feeling excessively tired can be a symptom in the weeks leading up to a heart attack.
4. Pain in the shoulders, neck, arms, jaw or abdomen can be present – without any chest pain – during a heart attack.
5. A rapid or irregular pulse, especially if accompanied by weakness dizziness or shortness of breath, should not be left untreated.
A person having a heart attack may not be aware or simply be in denial that they need urgent medical attention. Wasting time is dangerous. If you don’t feel well and are experiencing any of these symptoms, see a doctor immediately or dial 911.
