What Does a Heart Attack Feel Like?


A heart attack is a serious medical emergency that occurs when the blood flow to the heart is blocked, causing damage to the heart muscle.

The symptoms of a heart attack can vary from person to person, and they can range from mild to severe. Common symptoms of a heart attack include:

Chest Pain:

This is often described as a feeling of tightness, pressure, or squeezing in the chest. The pain may radiate to the arms, neck, jaw, or back.

Shortness of Breath:

This can range from mild to severe, and it may be accompanied by difficulty breathing or feeling like you can't catch your breath.


Some people may experience nausea or vomiting during a heart attack.

Lightheadedness or Dizziness:

This can be a feeling of unsteadiness or disorientation.


Some people may experience cold sweats or excessive sweating during a heart attack.

It is important to note that not everyone experiences all of these symptoms, and some people may have no symptoms at all.

If you suspect that you or someone else is having a heart attack, it is important to seek medical attention immediately.

Monitor your heart rate, breathing rate, strain, heart rhythms, HRV, continuous ECG and a lot more using Frontier X2.
