Heart attacks are responsible for 25% of all deaths in America. This makes heart attacks the leading cause of death in the country, even outranking cancer. The major causes of a heart attack are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and smoking. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the following conditions will add to your risk of having a heart attack:

  • Diabetes
  • Overweight and obesity
  • Poor diet
  • Physical inactivity
  • Excessive alcohol use

Approximately half of all heart attacks happen outside of a hospital and early detection is a key factor in determining your chance of survival. According to the CDC: “In a 2005 survey, most respondents—92%—recognized chest pain as a symptom of a heart attack. Only 27% were aware of all major symptoms and knew to call 9-1-1 when someone was having a heart attack.”

Here are the major symptoms to be aware of:

1. Chest Discomfort

This is the most common of all symptoms and it can strike in a variety of ways. Some people feel pressure in their chest and others feel burning or pinching. The feeling can happen when you’re involved in physical activity or when you’re at rest. The crucial part here is that if you are feeling any weird sensations in your chest it is best to err on the side of caution and see a doctor immediately.

However, it is important to remember that you can have heart problems — even a heart attack — without chest pain. This is particularly common among women.

2. Feeling Tired

Suddenly feeling fatigued for no apparent reason could be a sign that heart attack is on its way. The heart has to work harder as the arteries begin to close and this can make simple tasks like walking up the stairs feel exhausting. This can also result in sleeping longer hours at night or having the desire to take naps during the day.

3. Long Lasting Cold Symptoms

Having cold symptoms that won’t let up could be a sign of heart failure. As the heart struggles to keep up with the amount of blood needed by the body, blood leaks back into the lungs. Pay special attention to the appearance of white or pink mucus with your cough, which is the byproduct of this blood leakage.
