Warning Signs of a Heart Attack

When each second counts, don't wait. If you are feeling:

  • Chest discomfort that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.
  • Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, back, neck, jaw or stomach.
  • Shortness of breath, light-headedness, cold sweat or nausea along with chest discomfort.

Women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and back or jaw pain.

If you experience these symptoms, call 911 immediately.
