Listen to your body to be able to act on time. The symptoms of a heart attack can often be detected at an early stage.
1. Pain in the chest
A classic symptom of the heart attack is a violent pain in the chest. The pain center is located behind the sternum, and the pain lasts for up to 20 minutes or suddenly increases.
Often, the pain is also associated with a tightness in the chest, which can extend to an internal pressure , As a heart attack is usually surprising, all of these symptoms can come from the subjective patient's feeling "out of nowhere".
Because of the intensity of the pain the heart attack is hardly tolerable for the patients, often Infarktopfer describe the feeling with one A vise that compresses the chest. This feeling of tightness in the chest caused dyspnoea and finally panic.
The German Heart Foundation generally advises to contact an emergency physician whenever the symptoms of a heart attack occur at a previously unknown level.
. 2 Radiating pain
Radiating pain is not uncommon, the shoulder, lower jaws, upper abdomen and the arms are often affected by the pain of the infarction. Increasingly, the pain radiates into the left arm during an infarction. The pain is intense and lasting at least five minutes.
3. Non-unique symptoms
Admittedly, heart attacks affect men in much higher numbers than women, but this can be extremely tricky in women, because the symptoms are often different from men's. Thus, many women describe the pain that they experienced during the infarction, as deep-seated as male infarction patients. Concretely, the pain expresses itself as a crampy pain in the upper abdomen, which can reach into the chest and can cause shortness of breath and a tightness there. The "silent" infarction
A so-called "silent" or "silent" infarction is a heart attack that the patient does not even notice or hardly notice. Diabetes patients are particularly affected by dumb infarcts. A diagnosis of the infarction is correspondingly difficult, since the symptoms are often ignored or dismissed as heartburn.
The fact that diabetics in particular often experience dysfunction in infarcts is due to the damage of the organs of the organs
5. Elevated blood pressure is not a clear symptom
Blood pressure is not a reliable method to diagnose a heart attack. Although the blood pressure usually decreases as a result of infarction, the panic in infarction can lead to an increased output of adrenaline and stress hormones. This in turn increases the blood pressure.
Many patients also describe the infarction as a strong feeling of burning – also because of the spatial proximity to the stomach and esophagus, the infarction is often confused with mere heartburn. Patients who know that they are part of the risk group should therefore be upset in the case of severe burning in the chest and upper abdomen area.
In addition to the subjective feeling of death anxiety and a panic dyspnoea, outbreaks of cold anxiety sweat may also belong to the infarction symptoms. The above described serious symptoms do not always have to be signs of a heart attack and can also be due to harmless causes such as severe heartburn indicate. However, these diseases can also be indicia on air in the pleural gap with pulmonary collapse (extreme respiratory distress) or rupture of the aorta (extreme chest pain).
Also in these cases, the pain is extreme and so never occurred
