What are the Symptoms of a heart attack?

Would you know if you or someone you care for was having one?

Heart attacks can vary hugely between individuals. You MAY have one or more of the following symptoms but as the video below explains this is not always the case.

  • You may have pain or discomfort in your chest that does not go away,
  • You may have pain that spreads to your arms, jaw, back or stomach,
  • You may feel lightheaded, dizzy and feel short of breath,
  • You may feel nauseous or actually vomit.

If you do think you-or someone else is having a heart attack phone 999/911 immediately.

This video from You Tube also highlights other less well known symptoms.
