A heart attack is more than a good enough reason to call 999 – even during this pandemic. But what are the signs you’re suffering from the condition?
People may experience one or multiple symptoms of a heart attack.
For instance, the Heart Foundation states some people “may feel an ache or tightness in and around the lower jaw”.
This can be experienced on one or both sides. This painful sensation may have spread to the jaw from the chest.
This includes struggling to take a deep breath due to a tight or constricted feeling in the chest.
These symptoms may or may not be accompanied by nausea.
Another symptom of a heart attack may be “general discomfort in the neck”, or a “chocking or burning feeling in the throat”.
Some people may experience light-headedness while suffering from other heart attack symptoms.
