6/Shortness of breath
Another indication that a heart attack may be on the horizon is shortness of breath. When arteries narrow and blood flow is reduced, your lungs are not able to get the blood flow they need to function properly. Your heart and lungs work together, and if one system is not working properly, it affects the other. Therefore, if you are experiencing shortness of breath, it could be a red flag that a heart attack may happen to you in the near future.
It’s normal for your heart rate to increase when you’re nervous or excited, but if you feel like your heart is beating out of time for more than just a few seconds, or if it happens often, it might be a sign that you’re heading for a heart attack.
“Skipped beats or arrhythmias are often accompanied by a panic attack and anxiety, especially among women. It appears unexpectedly and reveals itself differently: arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) or tachycardia (increased heart rate). Physical exercises might give an extra stimulus to the increase of heart rate, especially in cases with atherosclerosis disease,” reports Bright Side.
8/ Hair loss
Losing your hair is considered to be just another visible indicator of the risk of heart disease. Most commonly it affects men over 50, but some women may also be in the risk group. Baldness is also associated with an increased level of the hormone cortisol.
9/ Abdominal pain
Abdominal pains, empty/full stomach nausea, feeling bloated, or an upset stomach is several of the most common symptoms. It’s easy to attribute these to indigestion problems instead of heart problems. The symptoms are equally likely to occur among women and men.
