Your heart is your life. You should be aware of and never ignore the signs of heart disease, the number one killer of both men and women in the US. Heart attack is one acute manifestation of many distinct heart conditions. Common among these are atherosclerosis(blocked or restricted coronary arteries), arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, and heart failure, the inability of a heart to pump sufficient blood flow to the body. Symptoms may include: Discomfort or pain in arms, back, jaw, neck, or stomach. Shortness of breath, with or without chest pain. Cold sweat. Nausea or vomiting. Lightheadedness. Anxiety. Extreme fatigue. Pressure or pain in the lower chest, upper abdomen, or upper back. Lightheadedness. Fainting. Heart Health Clinics are typically housed within or closely associated with major hospitals. Board certified specialists analyze symptoms and conduct tests to properly diagnose and treat heart conditions.
