Knowing the readership of Silver Vigilante, we thought it would be relevant to go over the warning signs of a heart attack with some other info included. It is very important we listen to our bodies when they try to tell us something. Many health issues begin with signals sent out by our body – such as discomfort,pain, tenderness and discoloration. Listening to your body in some respects is more subtle than listening to your mouth after you’ve eaten food too hot or too spicy or when you have a minor cold coming on or experiene something traumatizing.
Your heart is a sensitive organ, and listening to it is very important, for ignoring it could be deadly. Researchers at Duke University Medical Center have found that unrecognized myocardial infarctions (or “silent” heart attacks) are much more common than previously expected and carry a pronounced risk of sudden death.
Studies indicate that approximately 200,00 Americans suffer a heart attack each year without realizing it. These silent heart attacks account for one-fourth of all heart attacks. Your body still warns you about these silent heart attacks. Symptoms can be mild, vague and even painless. Some things to watch out for:
1. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.
Upper body discomfort
2. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
with or without chest discomfort.
3. may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
Remember, you wan to know how to protect your silver stash, and one of those ways is by staying alive. It is important to do this not only for the sake/stake of your stash, but your loved ones and your own sake.
