The strongest muscle in the human body is the heart. Yet, heart disease is one of the top killers in the United States. Here are a few common warning signs from Aging Care when it comes to an heart attack. First obvious sign that you might have an heart attack is chest discomfort and pain. If there are pressure, fullness, and pain around the center region of the chest, that is mild or strong, you might be having an heart attack. Other symptoms also include the discomfort in the upper body from your arms to your neck and jaw, shortness of breath, nausea, and cold sweat. If you are experiencing these symptoms, it is vital to get help as quickly as possible. First and foremost, call for emergency help within 5 minutes of the symptoms, and if symptoms go away after 5 minutes, it is still important to call your doctor. Take an Aspirin to reduce chances of blood clot. But above all, 9-1-1 should be called before any other action. Over a million in this countries had heart attacks every year, and about half of them have died. However, if you are looking at the glass as half full, about half of them survived. One can definitely recover from such an event, and the faster you get help, the better the chance.
