Heart Attack Vs Heartburn: The Thin Red Line with Your Life at Stake

You may be one of those people who does not take good care of your health with no annual health check-up, opting for a doctor’s appointment as the last resort. Combine that with risk factors such as smoking, obesity and a poor diet you may need to rethink the symptoms of heartburn.

Heartburn is when you often belch with sour or bitter liquid in your mouth and throat. The condition may involve colicky pain in the chest, indigestion, difficulties and pain when swallowing food, distended abdomen, feeling nausea and vomiting. It often leads to stress and insomnia. Those suffering from these symptoms may think is gastro esophageal reflux, just go to the pharmacy, take some medicine and it will pass. But what if it is not ‘just a gastro esophageal reflux’? A heart attack may involve colicky pain in your chest, feeling nauseous, pain in the abdomen, a rapid heartbeat, excessive sweating, shortness of breath, difficulty sleeping, tiredness, dizziness and so forth. When tye symptoms appear to be minor, many tend overlook the fact that it may be a symptom of a heart attack. This leads to a more serious condition with time being imperative in rescuing patients from a fatal stage. Being more aware of ‘thin’ is that thin red line, may result in more attention to these symptoms and paying more attention to the following factors:

  • Blood cholesterol levels higher than normal;
  • Diabetes or blood sugar levels higher than normal;
  • Cardiopathy history in the families;
  • Being overweight
  • Lack of exercise;
  • Preference for junk food and carbonated drinks
  • For all these issues a health check is vital to understand

the cause of any symptoms. However being cleared of a heart attack is not a clearance for life with regular and at least annual checks an ongoing necessity. There is no way to resurrect your heart muscle once it dies off. Your heart will never work the same again. Please do not take neglect your body until it is too late.
