Dr. Oz: Are You Having a Heart Attack?


Did you know, half the people that have heart attacks never even feel a symptom?

As a cardiac surgeon, I think it’s crucial for you to know the most common signs.

Chest pain; it can feel like pressure, fullness, or squeezing. It is often mistaken for heart burn or indigestion.

A discomfort radiating in the upper body; into one, or the other, arm, back, neck, jaw, or stomach.

Difficulty breathing, or shortness of breath.

Breaking-out into a full, cold sweat.

Waves of nausea, or dizziness.

And lastly, you might experience sudden extreme fatigue.

The best time to treat a heart attack is within one or two hours of the first symptoms.

Waiting any longer increases the chances of damage to the heart and the chances for survival.

Know the signs, so you can act, before it’s too late.
