“What are the warning signs of a heart attack?”

Heart attack symptoms can vary. You may feel uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.

Pain or discomfort may also be felt in one or both of your arms, your back, neck, jaw or stomach. Shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort can slo occur. You may feel all or some of these symptoms.

“How do you get a heart attack?”

You get a heart attack if the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section of your heart muscle suddenly becomes blocked and your heart can’t get oxygen.

Most heart attacks occur as a consequence of coronary heart disease that narrow the arteries. Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up inside your coronary arteries.
