How to know if you may soon have a heart attack

Unusual Fatigue. It can also be a symptom of a medical condition. It is more likely to be short term. Sleepiness, or drowsiness, may be solved by getting a good night’s sleep. Fatigue, especially chronic fatigue, is usually linked to a medical problem even pending heart attack.

Hair Loss. One of the most visible signs of heart disease is losing hair on the crown of your head. This most commonly affects men over 50, but some women may also be in the risk group.

Irregular heartbeats or tachycardia (increased heart rate) can happen abruptly and often lasts for 1-2 minutes. If it doesn’t fade, you might feel dizziness and extreme fatigue, in which case you should call the doctor right away.

SOB (shortness of breath). Known medically as dyspnea — is often described as an intense tightening in the chest, air hunger or a feeling of suffocation. Very strenuous exercise, extreme temperatures, massive obesity and high altitude all can cause shortness of breath in a healthy person.This sign can affect both men and women for up to six months before a heart attack.

Chest pain. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain. Other symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach; shortness of breath or breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
