The main cause of early deaths in the US are heart attacks. The stress of life, coupled with the junk food that we keep consuming, are major reasons why this illness is becoming more common.
Leading a healthy lifestyle, with plenty of exercise, and trying to limit your levels of stress can help significantly decrease your risk of heart failure, but another thing that can be just as useful, even lifesaving, is being aware of the symptoms of heart failure a month before it happens.
The following are symptoms that could be warning you of the possibility of a heart attack in a month. If you experience any of these red flags, get yourself to a doctor immediately. Even if it eventually turns out to be something not as serious as a heart attack, isn't it better to be safe than sorry?
If you experience flu symptoms out of the blue this could be because a heart attack is about to happen in the not-so-distant-future. Many people who have had heart attacks say that they feel like they developed a cold before their attacks.
5. Dizziness and Cold Sweats
Poor circulation will also restrict the blood flow to your brain. This is life threatening in itself, and will at first cause dizziness and clamminess. Do not ignore this!
6. Chest Pressure
If you are experiencing the onset symptoms of a heart attack, chances are you have also been experiencing a discomfort in your chest - whether it's minor pain or a built-up pressure. This discomfort will gradually increase until the heart attack itself happens.
