These are the seven risks of a heart attack:
1. Family History: Ask your parents, siblings and find out if they or anyone else in the family had a heart attack or coronary artery disease. Be specific many people can have “Heart Problems,” but you must ask about heart attack or coronary artery disease. Even if extended family members (aunts uncles, cousins) have had a heart attack, you may still be at risk of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease.
Immediately call your doctor if you are experiencing any of these symptoms: Chest discomfort of any kind, shortness of breath, arm pain, dyspnea, swelling, and dizziness.
