Other signs Chest pain While only about 30% of women might suffer chest pains due to an impending attack, the condition is worst in men and often serves as a strong signal that you might be at risk of a heart attack. The pain might spread to the arms, shoulders, stomach, neck or the lower jaw.
2. Hair loss If you start losing hair or developing baldness due to hiked levels of cortisol hormone, you need to see a doctor. Your heart might be failing gradually. This is not very common in women and majorly manifest in men over 50 years.
1. Irregular heartbeat Also known as arrhythmia, inconsistent heartbeats are strong indications of a heart attack. They occur suddenly, followed by anxiety and panic attacks. Sometimes, the heart rate increases (tachycardia) dramatically even with minor physical exercise. It usually lasts for up to 2 minutes and might result in dizziness and fatigue if it persists. If this happens, call a doctor immediately.
