What are the Symptoms of a Heart Attack?

The symptoms of a heart attack can vary from person to person, but common signs and symptoms include:

  • Chest pain or discomfort, which may feel like pressure, tightness, squeezing, or heaviness in the chest.
  • Pain or discomfort in the arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach.
  • Shortness of breath, often accompanying chest discomfort.
  • Nausea, vomiting, lightheadedness, or sudden dizziness.
  • Cold sweats, clammy skin, or a sense of impending doom.

It is important to note that not everyone experiences typical chest pain during a heart attack, and symptoms can be different in men and women.
