In What Other Parts Of Your Body Might You Feel Pain Before Having a Heart Attack?
This discomfort is caused by a lack of oxygen-rich blood flow to the heart, and it is something that you should not take for granted if you truly care about your heart and life.
1. Pain in the shoulder, neck, or arms Having chronic pain in the shoulder, neck, or arms might be an indicator that a person will soon experience a heart attack. This is particularly true if the pain is not related with any other ailment or health concern. If you start suffering chronic discomfort in the shoulder, neck, or arms, it is in your best interest to see a medical professional as soon as possible.
2. Chest discomfort that is constant and is frequently accompanied by either shortness of breath or the sensation that you are unable to take a full, deep breath. These warning symptoms of an approaching heart attack are not to be ignored for the sake of your general health; rather, you should seek immediate medical attention. It is important not to ignore pain or discomfort in the chest that is not brought on by any recent trauma or other evident physical problem.
3. If you too have any of the aforementioned indicators and are experiencing pain or discomfort in your upper body, you should not dismiss it as unimportant.
