Acute myocardial infarction is the medical name for a heart attack. A heart attack is a hazardous condition that happens when blood stream to the heart muscle is abruptly cut off, causing tissue damage. This is usually the consequence of a blockage in at least one of the coronary arteries. A blockage can create because of a development of plaque, a substance generally made of fat, cholesterol, and cellular waste item.
While the classic symptoms of a heart attack are chest pain and shortness of breath, the symptoms can be very varied. The most widely recognized symptoms of a heart attack include:
snugness in the chest
pain in the chest, back, jaw, and different areas of the upper body
shortness of breath
sweating
nausea
vomiting
anxiety
a cough
dizziness
a fast heart rate

It's important to take note of that not all individuals who have heart attacks encounter the same symptoms or the same seriousness of symptoms. Chest pain is the most usually revealed symptom among the two ladies and men. Be that as it may, ladies are more probable than men to have:
shortness of breath
jaw pain
upper back pain
nausea
vomiting

In fact, a few ladies who have had a heart attack report that their symptoms felt like the symptoms of this season's cold virus.
