Excessive Sweat or Chest Pain? It could indicate the onset of a heart attack

According to a new international study published by Elsevier in the Journal of the American College Of Cardiology, the death rate due to cardiovascular diseases in India increased from 155.7 to 209.1 deaths per one lakh population between 1990 and 2016. Although various reasons such as imbalanced diet, lack of physical activity, stress, and other reasons are usually considered responsible, a major reason for these figures is the delay in identifying the onset of cardiovascular disease such as heart attack.

Identification

Experts at the British Heart Foundation, excessive sweating might be an early sign of a heart attack. Though it is common to experience heavy sweating after a workout or during a hot day, sweating without a reason is a sign of worry. For instance, excessive sweating coupled with sharp chest pain has been known to point towards myocardial infarction.

However, people with Hyperhidrosis i.e. excessive sweating are strongly recommended to visit their nearest pharmacist or physician for treatment courses that include the use of strong antiperspirants, soaps that suit your skin type, and sweet shield for your clothes.

In addition, chest pain is more prominent in diabetic patients, aged people, and women as heart attack might lead to nerve damage, which directly influences how you feel pain. On this, the British Heart Foundation said, “Heart attack symptoms vary from one person to another.” Some of the common heart attack symptoms include severe chest pain, radiating pain in your arm, and sudden dizziness.

Remedies

Heart attack or other cardiovascular diseases can be life-threatening. Keeping that in mind, here are some changes in habits and lifestyle that can help prevent an extreme case of the disease:

  • Healthy Diet

A well-balanced, healthy diet is rich in nutrients, easier for the body to process, and reduces the chances of fatty deposits in arteries

  • Less salt

Restrict the amount of salt in your diet as salt increases blood pressure that can lead to a heart attack

  • Exercise

Try to include 20 minutes of workout in your daily routine, be it running, jogging, aerobics, yoga, or body weight exercises. Exercise maintains the condition of blood vessels and contributes to a healthy heart.

Most importantly, try to follow the remedies as strictly as possible and whenever you feel any of the above-mentioned symptoms, do not ignore them and visit your nearest clinic immediately.
