Heart attack

A heart attack also known as a myocardial infarction is usually caused due to the interruption of blood supply to the heart which causes heart cells to die. This is mostly due to blockage of a coronary artery which is caused by plaque. If left untreated it usually leads to death. Some of the symptoms include feeling a tight band around the chest, shooting pains up and down the left side of your body, anxiety, cough, fainting, heavy pressure, palpitations, shortness of breath and sweating. If you have symptoms of a heart attack, call your local emergency number right away.
