What if you could tell when you’re about to have a heart attack? It turns out there are signs in men that can warn a cardiac episode is possibly on the way, so you can seek medical attention earlier.
As Men’s Health points out, it’s not always like in the movies when a guy that seems perfectly healthy suddenly clutches his chest and keels over. That scenario does happen but it’s not as common as you might think. There are ways your body may be trying to tell you that something’s up with your heart. Here are 12 signs of heart attacks in men.
It’s apparently true that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Healthline.com says nausea, vomiting, and other gastrointestinal issues can be early warning signs of a heart attack.
The source also indicates that abdominal pain or heartburn could be a sign of a “silent heart attack,” which is when you have a heart attack without all the classic symptoms. In fact, as many as 200,000 Americans have a silent heart attack every year without realizing it.
