Heed the Warning Signs!*

Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the
center of the chest that lasts for more than a few minutes, or goes away
and comes back. The discomfort can feel like uncomfortable pressure,
squeezing, fullness, or pain.

Discomfort in other areas of the upper body.
Can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back,
neck, jaw, or stomach.

Shortness of breath. Often comes along with chest discomfort.
But it also can occur before chest discomfort.

Other symptoms. May include breaking out in a cold sweat,
nausea, or light-headedness.

Women! Your most common heart attack symptom is chest
pain or discomfort, but women are somewhat more likely than
men to experience shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and
back or jaw pain.
