Heart attack symptoms: The five signs 'you should never ignore' – FULL list

Heart attacks are a serious medical emergency that require immediate medical attention. It’s crucial that you’re aware of the most common signs of a heart attack, so that you can respond quickly if you ever have to.

Heart attacks are caused by a lack of blood reaching the heart.

Without enough blood, the heart could become seriously damaged – and it may even be life-threatening.

A heart attack could also be a symptom of coronary heart disease, which is where fatty deposits build up in the arteries, which limits the amount of blood reaching the heart.

There are numerous symptoms of a heart attack, and they tend to differ between both men and women.

Some patients could feel very lightheaded or dizzy, and become overwhelmed with fatigue.

“During a heart attack, the blood supply that normally nourishes the heart with oxygen is cut off and the heart muscle begins to die,” it said.

“Some people who are having a heart attack have warning signs, while others show no signs.

YouTube vs TikTok boxing: Full fight list and undercard for YouTubers vs TikTokers tonight

Full list of summer destinations as ANOTHER country allows in fully vaccinated Brits

Iceland

Iceland, which is on the UK’s green list at the time of writing, is welcoming back British tourists as long as they can prove they are fully vaccinated.

“Due to COVID-19 restrictions, non-essential travel by British citizens from the UK/other non EU/EEA country to Iceland is only permitted, if you can adequately demonstrate you have either been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or previously recovered from COVID-19 infection,” explains the FCDO.

“You will be asked to provide proof of vaccination which must contain the specific COVID information Iceland requires.

“If you live in Scotland, Iceland will accept your NHS Scotland letter.

“Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.”

Malta

Malta is already welcoming back fully vaccinated travellers from the UK.

Those who can provide evidence of their inoculation status are eligible to avoid quarantine and further testing as of June 1.

Air Malta has advised customers that all persons travelling to Malta must, prior to boarding, be in possession of a negative PCR test performed within 72 hours of their arrival in Malta and a completed Passenger Locator Form including a Public Health Travel Declaration Form.

Passengers in possession of a valid Maltese vaccine certificate can use this in lieu of a negative PCR test result.

Customers, who are not in possession of these documents will be denied boarding. 

Portugal

Portugal, which was recently axed from the UK green list, has been welcoming back British arrivals who are fully vaccinated.

Those who can show evidence of their status can side-step the need for a PCR test.

“If you have recovered from COVID-19 in the last 90 days, or have had both doses of the vaccine at least 15 days prior to travel, you will be exempt from showing a RT-PCR COVID-19 test on entry,” states the FCDO.

“If you live in England, Madeira will accept your NHS letter to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status. Other travellers will need to show a medical report as evidence of your status.

“You cannot use a handwritten NHS COVID card as proof of vaccination for travel purposes.”

Kevin De Bruyne copies Cristiano Ronaldo to complete full Man City sweep of PFA awards

“You want to win all the trophies with the team, and this is probably the most important one as an individual trophy in the league.

“To be voted by your competitors, by players you compete with every game, to choose you, that says a lot.

“They’re the people in my view who know most about the game. When you have these things, you can show your kids and say ‘Look, this is what daddy did when he was younger.’”

De Bruyne’s win completed a clean sweep of the PFA awards for City, with his team-mate Phil Foden named Young Player of the Year.

Five councils in England ban smoking outside pubs, cafes and restaurants – full list

Manchester, Newcastle, Durham, Northumberland and North Tyneside county councils have banned smoking on pavements outside hospitality venues, such as pubs, cafes and restaurants. These rules only apply to establishments where outdoor seating is provided by the business. Oxfordshire County Council is set to be next in line to follow the Government’s vision.

“Smoking leads to disease and disability and harms nearly every organ of the body,” said the CDC.

Secondhand smoke

In addition, secondhand smoke exposure contributes to approximately 41,000 deaths among non-smoking adults and 400 deaths in infants each year.

Children exposed to secondhand smoke are more at risk of:

  • Sudden infant death syndrome
  • Acute respiratory infections
  • Middle ear disease
  • More severe asthma
  • Slowed lung growth
  • Respiratory symptoms

Secondhand smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals – hundreds are toxic and 70 can cause cancer.

“Breathing secondhand smoke can have immediate adverse effects on your blood and blood vessels, increasing the risk of having a heart attack,” added the CDC.

Smoke-free Britain

Employers are expected to enforce smoke-free spaces outside shops, offices, and factories, the Daily Mail reported.

Moreover, a seventh local authority, Gateshead Council grants licenses to venues that say pavement cafes must be smoke-free, the Guardian stated.

Oxfordshire County Council revealed that it’s “considering proposals for hospitality outdoor seating to be 100 per cent smoke-free”.

“At present there are no timeframes for smoke-free pavement licensing proposals and nothing has yet been agreed,” the council clarified.

However, Simon Clark – the director of the smokers’ lobby group Forest (Freedom Organisation for the Right to Enjoy Smoking) criticised the plans.

“It’s no business of local councils if adults choose to smoke… Reducing smoking rates to meet some idealistic target is not a priority for most people.”
