Leading up to a heart attack, you’ll feel unexplained fatigue/tiredness and shortness of breath. This is due to your heart’s inability to pump oxygenated blood throughout your body. Your body requires oxygen to function properly. Naturally, you will feel out of breath.
Shortness of breath can occur for a few days or weeks leading to a heart attack.
Unexplained shortness of breath should always be checked by your doctor.
3. Pain in other parts of your body
During a heart attack, chest pain may or may not be present. Some individuals report pain/discomfort spreading to different parts of the body like the back, to one arm, to the stomach or jaw.
Regardless, heart disease is a largely preventable disease. Speak to your doctor/pharmacist for more information about your heart health. When in doubt of symptoms, always call an ambulance at “999” if you are in Malaysia.
