Heart attack

If you or a loved one experience symptoms of a heart attack or another killer condition, you must seek help as you always would. For a suspected heart attack that means phoning 999 immediately

The common symptoms of a heart attack can include:
o chest pain – the chest can feel like it’s being pressed or squeezed by a heavy object, and pain can radiate from the chest to the jaw, neck, arms and back
o shortness of breath
o feeling weak or lightheaded, or both
o an overwhelming feeling of anxiety
