Is it a heart attack?
Some heart attacks are sudden and intense, but most start slowly . That's why it's so important to know the early warning signs, and what to do if you experience them.
Don't ignore the signs.
- Chest pressure, tightness, and heaviness
- Extreme fatigue
- Fainting and lightheadedness
- Pain in shoulders, neck, jaw, or arms
- Shortness of breath with or without chest pain
Aspirin is not appropriate for everyone so be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.
