The signs of a heart attack are, as you can see, very different and often not as typical as you might think. One distinguishes the typical picture of the pale, sweaty and anxious patient, with pain in the chest and left arm from the more atypical picture. The atypical symptomatology manifests itself, for example, in abdominal pain and nausea, back pain and dizziness and thus occurs more often in women and older people.
It is also important to note that these atypical signs can often suggest a heart attack weeks before. Finally, clinical examinations provide precise information and make physical signs visible.
