In 2013, one out of every three deaths in the United States was from a stroke, heart disease, or another cardiovascular disease, according to the American Heart Association.
Stroke and heart disease were the number one and number two leading cause of death around the world.
Heart attacks are the result of a coronary artery blockage or poor blood flow supply. Heart attacks are not without their warning signs. But you have to pay close attention to what your body is telling you. Scroll down to see what you may experience one month before a heart attack strikes.
1. Chest or pain in your arms, shoulders, and back are huge red flags – call your doctor as soon as you can.
2. One signal that a heart attack is in its early stage is unusual body weakness.
The weakness is a result of narrowing of arteries and poor blood circulation.
3. You may also feel dizzy. This is also from the lack of blood flowing in your body.
If your brain doesn’t get enough blood – you feel dizzy.
4. Feeling cold, clammy, and just generally not feeling good are also signs.
Beware of cold sweats, which mean your body is stressed.
5. One month before having a heart attack, many patients stated they had some cold or flu symptoms.
