Scientists Have Found a New and Unusual Sign of an Impending Heart Attack

This symptom, British doctors and scientists say, is unusual for a heart attack and therefore should never be ignored. Increased sweating may indicate an imminent heart attack in a person.

“If you feel hot and sweaty along with chest pain, you should call an ambulance,” doctors recommend. They say that excessive sweating is usually unusual for a heart attack and should not be ignored.

Experts emphasized that there are a number of non-obvious signs indicating heart problems that patients often attribute to other diseases. For example, abdominal pain or digestive problems.

Also, according to experts, swollen ankles can signal heart failure, and chest pain that occurs during exercise can be a symptom of angina.
