Let’s Talk About When Things Go Wrong…

Heartburn-like chest pain. It’s quite common for heart attacks to feel like acid reflux.
Shortness of breath. Some heart attacks don’t cause pain at all. These “silent heart attacks” are most common in people with diabetes, older adults and those who have had bypass surgery.
Profound fatigue. This symptom is most common in elderly patients and can be misdiagnosed as a flu-like illness.
Nausea and sweating. While these symptoms can come with heavy chest pain, they also can occur by themselves, especially in women. These symptoms commonly accompany heart attacks to the inferior wall (bottom) of the heart.
