The number of deaths caused by heart attacks is increasing worldwide. Recently, stress has been identified as the main cause of heart attacks.

Healthy lifestyle, which of course involves less stress, is very important for our future as well as development of cardiovascular events. But our body is a very smart "machine" which is able to predict a heart attack one month ahead and provides us with 6 clear signals that something is going wrong.

One of the biggest symptoms is physical weakness. You will start feeling weak as the arteries in your body are becoming narrow. This results in weaker blood flow and blood circulation, which causes muscle weakening. If you diagnose yourself with this symptom, you should be very careful.  

Vertigo and Cold Sweat 

These are another signal that something is going wrong. Your blood flow is weaker which affects blood flow to your brain. To make your body work well it needs sufficient amount of blood circulating in it. These symptoms may indicate that a heart attack is coming.   

Chest Pressure 

The bigger the pressure or more unpleasant feeling in your chest you feel, the closer the heart attack is. The pain may sometimes get to your shoulders or back, too. 

Cold or Flu 

Many people who suffered from a heart attack said they had got a cold or flu before. Your organism is weaker, that's why it is more prone to these illnesses.

You can easily sleep all day and still feel tired? It may not mean anything at all but it may also be one of the first symptoms of a heart attack. This is caused by very low blood flow to your heart. Your artery gets narrower and only a little blood gets to your heart which needs to work much harder than it is used to and you are logically more tired. 

Being Short of Breath

Is described as a feeling of a lack of air or very difficult breathing. It is again caused by narrow arteries which don't provide your lungs with as much blood as they need. 

Despite the fact that you may suffer from any of these symptoms, it doesn't mean you are prone to get a heart attack. They may be caused by a different disease. The best prevention against a heart attack is a healthy diet, exercise and, above all, as little stress as possible.
