Heart attack in men is one of the leading causes of deaths worldwide. Most of us know that if someone clutches his chest and falls to the floor he probably has a heart attack.
Not everyone having a heart attack is alarmed by a particular symptom. Most men feel unwell and may take an aspirin and try to rest when experiencing symptoms of a heart attack.
This is usually the first and most common symptom of heart attack in men. The pain is not always sharp or severe. It may be just a feeling of pressure, squeezing, heaviness, tightness or numbness that may spread to back or shoulders. The pain can come and go or the discomfort may persist.
This is another common symptom in men experiencing a heart attack. Most people mistake it for indigestion or heartburn and may take a ranitidine or antacid for it.
Recognizing the symptoms of a heart attack early is important to improve outcome and prevent death from it. If you are having chest discomfort or not feeling well contact your doctor.
