A pain in the chest
The symptomatology of a heart attack can vary: it often manifests itself as a sudden, intense pain, but sometimes it may present as a slight discomfort in the centre of the chest, accompanied by pressure or a feeling of fullness. These symptoms may arise gradually, disappear and then reappear, making diagnosis difficult.

Pain elsewhere in the body
A heart attack can also affect other parts of the body, which is why identification can be confusing. The other parts of the body that can be affected are the arms, back, neck, jaw and stomach, with symptoms varying for each subject.

Respiratory difficulties
If you feel exhausted after small efforts such as climbing stairs, this could indicate a circulation problem. Shortness of breath, sometimes without chest pain, could be a sign of a silent heart attack, as could dizziness and fainting. Although both men and women can experience this, women are more prone.

Nausea and cold sweats
Cold sweating, nausea and vomiting may be associated with influenza, but could also indicate a silent heart attack. Do not underestimate these symptoms as they could be signs of a much more serious condition.
