Unusual Sweating Predicts Oncoming Heart Attack

Time is of the essence during a heart attack, and now researchers believe they have found a new telltale sign to warn you of an impending attack: sweat. When individuals begin perspiring while experiencing discomfort in their chest, arm, neck or jaw -- with little or no exertion -- it could be the onset of a heart attack, according to a new study at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

If you are experiencing a heart attack, getting help as quickly as possible is essential. Yet, delay in seeking help is common and worsens the outcome after a heart attack. Other common symptoms of a heart attack include shortness of breath, cold sweats, nausea, and discomfort in the chest, arm, neck or jaw. And, as many do not realize, sudden death can also occur from heart disease.

Of course, the best alternative to recognizing a heart attack early on is to prevent one all together. Some tips for doing so include:

Taking fish oil or cod liver oil regularly
Resolving stress in your life
Following a regular exercise routine
