Want to know what a silent heart attack is?
Most movies show a heart attack by someone clutching their chest real tight, gasping for breath, or blacking out.
But what actually causes silent heart attacks?
Your heart is fueled by oxygen-rich blood. Cholesterol-rich plaque starts collecting in your coronary arteries.
Do you want to hear some shocking statistics?
One person gets a heart attack every 40 seconds in the United States alone. But your heart is much more intelligent than you think.
Do you have persistent flu?
Herbal teas and hot steam inhalation at home might not fully help. Every one of us feels under the weather once in a while.
Have you been feeling bloated for a while?
When your heart is not able to pump enough blood there will be fluid accumulation in your hands, feet, and around the belly.
Are you sweating a lot these days?
Sweating is a great way to get rid of the toxins from your body. It's your body's natural response to physical exertion or too hot and humid climates.
There is also a reason why heartburn should never be ignored.
Having spiced sausages or sriracha meatballs for dinner can cause a burning sensation in your digestive tract. So much so that it causes discomfort in your chest.
You might have heard that pain during a heart attack radiates only to the left arm.
But that's not always the case. Sometimes the pain may occur in the center of chest, the right hand, jaws, teeth, abdomen, and the back, too.
Moving along, feeling tired should never be dismissed as unimportant.
It could mean something less serious but the probability of a silent heart attack cannot be denied. This tiredness is much different than working through those extra hours at the office or running an extra mile on the treadmill.
