Pain or discomfort that radiates to the shoulders, arms, back, neck or usually occurs in the upper abdomen
Often feel tired
Nausea and vomiting

Some cases of heart attack occur suddenly. There are still many people who experience signs and symptoms for hours, days to weeks but are often ignored and not aware that there is a problem with their health.
Heart attacks can also be triggered by several risk factors, including:
The existence of increasing age can trigger a heart attack. Even more so if you live an unhealthy lifestyle and often neglect regular rest
There is a family history of heart disease
If there is one family member who has a history of heart disease, the potential for heart disease will also be greater.
Obesity is one of the causes of heart attacks. Excess weight will cause the blood vessels in the heart area to not run smoothly and can even get clogged with fat
When a person experiences stress, the body will release the hormone cortisol which results in the stiffness of a person's blood vessels.
Lack of activity and exercise Lack of exercise, smoking, and various activities that are bad for health can also trigger a person to develop heart disease. Some cases of heart attack occur suddenly. There are still many people who experience signs and symptoms for hours, days to weeks but are often ignored and not aware that there is a problem with their health.
If you experience any of the symptoms of a heart attack, immediately consult a cardiologist and blood vessel specialist at Hermina Makassar Hospital. Do an echocardiography investigation to find out the health condition of your heart and get treatment according to your complaint. Greetings healthy
