Myocardial Infarction Symptoms:

Someone has a heart attack every 40 seconds in the United States, making it one of the country's biggest health concerns for both men and women. While some heart attacks strike quickly and with little warning, they usually start with gradual discomfort. Because they can often be fatal, it is important to understand the warning signs so you can seek medical care immediately:
  • Tightness or pain in the chest
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Aching in arms or chest
  • Shortness of breath
  • Cold sweat
  • Irregular heartbeat

Myocardial Infarction Risk Factors:

Common conditions that increase your risk of having a heart attack include:
  • Age
  • High blood pressure
  • Genetics/family history
  • Alcohol use

What is Myocardial Reinfarction?

Myocardial reinfarction is the reappearance of infarction symptoms, typically within weeks of a heart attack. Proper treatment can help prevent reinfarction and bolster heart health. However, if you exhibit symptoms in the period following a heart attack, immediately seek medical attention.
