What about silent heart attacks?

Heart attack with few no or atypical symptoms are far more common than was previously though according to a US study. One in 4 people with suspected heart disease were found to have had one and people with diabetes were especially at risk. Some people may remember experiencing vague symptoms but other have no recollection at all. As a result they miss out on treatment that can help reduce the workload of the heart and reduce the risk of future attacks. As well as the classic symptom of curshing chest pain, watch out for more subtle symptoms such as pressure or altered sensation in the chest, jaw, neck or shoulders, stomach ache, indigestion or breathlessness.
