Recently, regardless of age, even 20-year-olds are dying of heart attacks. Videos of young people collapsing on the spot while dancing and walking in college are going viral. Once upon a time only people over fifty were concerned about heart health. Now the youth are also at risk of heart disease, so if you increase your awareness of the symptoms that appear before a heart attack, it is possible to take care of it earlier. If blood circulation is obstructed and cholesterol accumulates in blood vessels, the heart is not properly supplied with blood. This causes a heart attack. More than 17 million people die every year due to heart disease in the world. A fifth of these deaths occur in our country.
There are many types of heart related diseases such as high blood pressure, arrhythmia, coronary artery disease and other diseases that cause problems in the blood vessels. However, what eventually happens is a heart attack. But before a heart attack occurs, there are some early symptoms. These are easily taken by many.
1. Chest pain comes and goes.
2. Breathing does not work properly.
3. Arm or shoulder pain is bothersome.
4. Feeling weak.
These symptoms may occur weeks or days before a heart attack. In some cases, they may appear hours earlier. A stiff neck, shoulder pain, indigestion, fatigue, cold sweats are also early signs of a heart attack. Also, mental anxiety, thoughts of doom, heart palpitations, and shortness of breath are also symptoms that should be taken seriously. Most of the people take it easy as everything mentioned here comes and goes for a while in days. Even if these appear for a few minutes or seconds, it is important to discuss the situation with a cardiologist.
Heart attacks seem to be more fatal in women than in men. This is because men can recover from a stroke or heart attack, but recovery can be challenging for women. Cholesterol build-up in the blood vessels can also cause heart attacks, but this build-up of cholesterol in the blood vessels is more common in men than in women. The possibility of heart attack is more in men as compared to women. Symptoms seen before a heart attack in men include chest pain, sweating and indigestion. In the same women, shortness of breath, jaw pain, back pain, feeling tired and sleeplessness are seen.
