Heart attacks in real life often are not as dramatic as they appear to be in movies. Some early symptoms of a heart attack can happen a month or so before the heart attack.

Before a heart attack, you may experience these symptoms:

  1. Unusual fatigue/low energy
  2. Trouble sleeping
  3. Problems breathing
  4. Indigestion
  5. Anxiety
  6. Back or abdominal pain

During a heart attack, these symptoms may occur:

  1. Pain, uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, or feeling of fullness in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back
  2. Pain or discomfort in other areas of the upper body, including the arms, back, neck, jaw, or stomach
  3. Shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort

Other symptoms are:

  1. Breaking out in a cold sweat
  2. Nausea and/or vomiting,
  3. Lightheadedness

Women also experience chest pain or discomfort, but also are more likely than men to experience

  1. shortness of breath,
  2. nausea/vomiting, and
