According to Cleveland Clinic’s online repository, a heart attack occurs when blood flow to a section of the heart muscle stops suddenly.

Many people who suffer from the disease feel pain in the chest which feels like discomfort, squeezing, or heaviness, or in more extreme cases, it can be a crashing pain.

Other symptoms include; shortness of breath, trouble sleeping, heart palpitations as well as dizziness.

The hospital indicates that the risk of suffering a heart attack for males increases once they hit the age of 45 while for females, their chances shoot at age 50.

Families with a history of heart disease also place individuals at higher risk. Poor lifestyles also contribute to a higher risk as well.
