The heart attack causes a variety of symptoms and they may not be felt as pain. Common symptoms may include:
Symptoms of a heart attack can vary for different people. Some people suffer from severe pain, some show no signs and few may have a sudden cardiac arrest. However, the more the symptoms, the more likely you are having a heart attack.
Symptoms may occur at rest or exertion. Exertional symptoms which last less than twenty minutes are more likely to be angina, which is cardiac pain arising due to blockages in arteries but is of a less serious nature than a heart attack.
If you are experiencing resting symptoms, it is advisable to visit the emergency room rather than the consulting clinic, to ensure that you receive prompt care from our highly trained team.
REMEMBER! Time is of essence; for a heart attack patient, every minute counts.
