Don't Ignore the Warning Signs of a Heart Attack

Heart attacks are not always sudden and intense. Many heart attacks start slowly with only mild pain or discomfort. Some people do not experience chest pain, but instead have other signs. Even when the signs are subtle, the consequences can be deadly, especially if the victim doesn’t get medical help right away. Do not ignore the following indicators of a heart attack.

Warning signs of heart attack include:
  • Chest discomfort
    • Uncomfortable pressure, heaviness
    • Squeezing, tightness
    • Possible burning
    • Discomfort lasts more than two minutes, may come and go
  • Discomfort in other areas of the upper body
    • One or both arms
    • Back
    • Neck, jaw
    • Stomach
  • Other signs (with or without chest discomfort)
    • Shortness of breath
    • Cold sweat
    • Nausea, vomiting
    • Light-headness
    • Extreme weakness/fatigue

    Heart Attack Warning Signs in Womens

    Women may have other, less common warning signs of heart attacks, including:

    • Atypical chest, stomach, abdominal, back or jaw pain
    • Nausea or dizziness
    • Shortness of breath and difficulty breathing
    • Unexplained anxiety, weakness or fatigue
    • Palpitations, cold sweat and/or paleness

    If you or someone you love is experiencing signs or symptoms of a heart attack, call 9-1-1 immediately and get to the nearest hospital emergency room.

    Laser Therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

    Research has shown LLLT creates photobiostimulation which activates enzymatic processes in our cells that promote cell metabolism (increases cell function) that eventually increase/release key hormones from the pineal bland who’s primary source of stimulation is light energy.

    LLLT has been successful in treating Carpel Tunnel Syndrome up to 85% of the time and other non-repetitive stress disorders. Fibromyalgia seems to respond well as does trigeminalneuralgia, scar tissue, complications from surgery, torn cartilage, nerve damage and headaches, muscular injuries, open wound and diabetic lesions.

    Clinical research continues to be done on hundreds of different conditions.
