Most people are familiar with the telltale signs of a heart attack, such as sudden chest pain and constriction, but heart attack symptoms can manifest themselves in several other ways too. This informational video from the NHBLI covers some of the causes and lesser-known symptoms of heart attacks.
A heart attack can induce nausea and vertigo and may be preceded by upper body pain in the chest, arms, back, or jaw. Even if you’ve suffered a heart attack before, the symptoms may not be the same for another.
