Two days ago, there was this commotion of people in Q.C. a man was dragged inside the tricycle (motorcycle with sidecar) to be rushed to the hospital. When I inquired what was it about they thought  the man is having a heart attack. It flashes back to me the day mother died because of a heart attack. So, here are some helpful tips for us to know the signs of a heart attack;
1) Pressure, aching or burning - not necessarily pain in the chest. 2 ) Often it increases with activity and subside with rest; 3) Discomfort, tightness, squeezing or fullness in the chest, usually lasting longer than two minutes and mild discomfort that may come back sooner. Last longer or feel more severe each time; 4) Discomfort in teeth, jaw, inner arm (often the left) or back and; 5) Dizziness, fainting, sweating, nausea, shortness of breath or weakness.
Note: If you are not sure whether discomfort is from heartburn or heart attack, ask these questions: Is the discomfort located in the center of the chest? Dose it persist? Does it increase in intensity? Does it become more intense with physical exertion, and then go away with rest?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then take aspirin, call for an ambulance or have someone drive you to the emergency room.
