Heart Attack

Even if you’ve never had a single sign of trouble, call 911 and go straight to the hospital for prompt evaluation if you experience any of these warning signs of heart attack:

  • Chest pain or discomfort — uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing, or pain in the center of the chest lasting more than a few minutes.

  • Pain spreading to the shoulders, neck, or arms.

  • Shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort.

  • Chest discomfort with lightheadedness, fainting, sweating, nausea, or shortness of breath.

  • Pain in the back and/or jaw, shortness of breath, extreme fatigue, nausea/vomiting, and lightheadedness. Note: These are additional signs of heart attack or more common signs of heart attack in women.
