There are several symptoms of a heart attack to be aware of. A key warning sign is chest pain, which is a sensation of pressure, tightness or squeezing in the centre of your chest
The NHS says that pain can also occur in other parts of the body, or you may find that you are feeling lightheaded or dizzy.
Other people find that they experience shortness of breath, are feeling sick, being sick, have an overwhelming sense of anxiety or are coughing or wheezing.
The NHS notes: “Although the chest pain is often severe, some people may only experience minor pain, similar to indigestion. In some cases, there may not be any chest pain at all, especially in women, older people, and people who have diabetes.”
