Recovering from Heart Attack at Home in San Marino, Pasadena


Recovering from Heart Attack at Home in San Marino & Pasadena, CA


Having a heart attack isn’t like it’s portrayed in the movies.  More times than not, there’s no sharp, unmistakable pain with the poor victim clutching at his chest gasping “my heart”.  Heart attacks and strokes can be deceptive, feeling more like indigestion or heartburn, with momentary dizziness and confusion.

Every year about 785,000 people have their first heart attack and more than half that number will have a second heart attack within their lifetime.  It’s important to know what to watch for and get immediate help.  Other than pain or discomfort in the chest, you should be concerned about:

  • pain in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach
  • any unexplainable change in heart rhythm, pounding or racing heartbeat
  • heartburn, nausea, stomach pain, vomiting
  • shortness of breath
  • dizziness or feeling lightheaded
  • breaking out in a cold sweat, suddenly feeling cold and clammy

Women, especially if elderly or diabetic, can show other subtle warning signs, including:

  • sleep disturbances
  • fatigue
  • body aches
  • sweating
  • feeling weak or ill

If you suspect someone might be having a heart attack, call 911 immediately.  It’s always better to act quickly, getting necessary treatment as soon as possible.
