It’s a known fact that the main cause of death in the United States are heart attacks. Another great contributor for this disease becoming so dangerous and common over the last years is the stressful way of life and the low quality food we keep eating.
Having a healthy lifestyle and trying to reduce the levels of stress in your life could help protect you from heart failure. However, another thing that may be very useful, even lifesaving, is to know the symptoms of heart failure one month before it happens.
Here are the symptoms that you could have a heart attack in a month. Make sure to always treat these as red flags.
When your arteries become narrow the heart receives a lot less blood than it’s used to. This makes your heart to work a whole lot harder than it usually would have to, leaving you feeling more tired and drowsy just about all of the time.
- SHORTNESS OF BREATH
When the heart is getting less blood it means your lungs are not able to get enough oxygen to the lungs as they normally would. The two systems depend on each other so without one you cannot have the other. In case you have been having trouble breathing it’s best for you to consult a doctor as soon as it is possible, as this could mean it is getting close to time for the attack.
When the body becomes weak all of a sudden it’s because the arteries are becoming more narrow and they are not allowing blood circulation properly. The muscles aren’t getting what they need, and that could cause you to fall even for what at first might seem like no reason, therefore you should be especially careful.
- DIZZINESS AND COLD SWEATS
Having poor circulations could also cause the blood flow to your brain to be restricted. This is life threatening. At first it will cause dizziness and clamminess. You definitely should not ignore this.
- CHEST PRESSURE
In case you are having onset symptoms of a heart attack, the chances are that you have been experiencing discomfort in the chest, whether it is minor pain or built-up pressure. That is constantly going to increase until the attack itself happens.
- FLU OR COLD SYMPTOMS
If it happens to feel as if you’re having flu symptoms out of nowhere it could be as the attack itself is about to happen in the very near future. Lots of people feel they have developed a cold only a few days before their attacks.
How to handle this:
If you or someone close to you is experiencing these symptoms, you should immediately see a doctor. The best way to prevent heart attack is by noticing the symptoms very early.
