Early signals of heart attack

Uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing, or pain in the chest, usually lasting longer than two minutes

Pain radiating to the shoulders, neck, jaw, arms, or back

Dizziness, fainting, sweating, nausea, shortness of breath, or weakness

None of these symptoms assures that a heart attack is in progress, but the more symptoms you have, the more likely it is a heart attack.
