Knowing your body and recognizing when something is wrong, is the first step to being able to seek treatment and potentially prevent life-threatening health problems.

A heart attack is one such health issue, which is far easier to prevent than it is to cure, given that the damage done by myocardial infarction cannot be undone.

Some people run a higher risk of suffering a heart attack due to genetics or other conditions that can affect blood clotting and cardiac tissue.

If a person is prone to having a heart attack, the body might show the following symptoms a month before so that preventive measures can be taken in time.


unusual fatigue may indicate an impending heart attack, with some experiencing exhaustion to the extent of being unable to carry out the simplest of tasks.

A higher number of women than men experience this symptom



WebMD reported that feelings of nausea, feeling bloated, or an upset stomach can also indicate the imminent risk of a heart attack.


Before a heart attack, abdominal pains become episodic in nature, with moments of pain and then comfort returning in short bursts resembling a cycle.


insomnia can also increase the risk of a heart attack or a stoke. It's more common among women than men and generally accompanies high levels of anxiety and absentmindedness.



One might struggle to draw a deep breath, which is a condition called Dyspnea or breathlessness. It can occur in both men and women as early as 6 months before having a heart attack, according to Caring.


Loss of hair is one of the most visible indicators of an increased risk of heart disease. It affects men over 50, but some women may also present this particular symptom before a heart attack.

Arrhythmias or skipped beats often occur along with panic attacks and anxiety. It might last for one to two minutes, but if the arrhythmia doesn't fade after a short period of time, if could hint at something much more sinister lurking, according to Caring.


Unusual sweating can be an early warning sign of a heart attack and may occur at any time of the day or night.

Flu-like symptoms, clammy skin, or sweatiness can present regardless of the air temperature or physical exertion if a patient is particularly at risk for a heart attack.



In men, the symptom of chest pain may be one of the most important indicators of heart attack. But this symptom is one that seems to favor men, affecting only 30% of women.
