Some heart attacks are sudden and intense — the "movie heart attack," where no one doubts what's happening. But most heart attacks start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Often people affected aren't sure what's wrong and wait too long before getting help. Here are signs that can mean a heart attack is happening:
As with men, women's most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and back or jaw pain.
Learn the signs, but remember this: Even if you're not sure it's a heart attack, have it checked out (tell a doctor about your symptoms). Minutes matter! Fast action can save lives — maybe your own. Don't wait more than five minutes to call 9-1-1 or your emergency response number.
Calling 9-1-1 is almost always the fastest way to get lifesaving treatment. Emergency medical services (EMS) staff can begin treatment when they arrive — up to an hour sooner than if someone gets to the hospital by car. EMS staff is also trained to revive someone whose heart has stopped. Patients with chest pain who arrive by ambulance usually receive faster treatment at the hospital, too. It is best to call EMS for rapid transport to the emergency room.
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us, and if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
I John 5:14-15
Confessions for a Strong Healthy Heart:
Thank you Father that I have a strong healthy heart. My heart beats with the rhythm of life. My blood flows to every cell of my body restoring life and health abundantly.
My blood pressure is normal. The life of God flows in my blood and cleanses my arteries of all matter that does not pertain to life.
I have a strong heart. Every heart beat floods my body with life and cleanses me of disease and pain.
In Jesus’ name, my arteries, will not shrink or become clogged. Arteries, you are clean, elastic and function as God created you to function.
(Isa. 55:11; Mark 11:23)
