Non-obvious signs of a heart attack

The most common symptoms of a heart attack are chest pain or pressure, but there may be other unexpected signs of myocardial infarction, according to Express.

Professor Adam Taylor of Lancaster University noted that the concern should be caused by plaque on the teeth, which looks like a sticky film. The scientist explained that the plaque actively develops “bad” bacteria that can enter the bloodstream, cause vascular inflammation and cause a heart attack.

Taylor warned that the sour taste in the mouth should also alert. In addition, jaw pain is dangerous, which many describe as severe toothache. The scientist added that it can also be a symptom of a heart attack.

In January 2020, scientists at Yale University in the United States came to the conclusion that one of the main causes of sudden heart attack is exposure to ultrafine particles often found in polluted air. The researchers analyzed data on non-fatal cases of myocardial infarction in Augsburg, Germany, among 5,898 patients. At the same time, the time of heart attacks was compared with the values ​​of air pollution taking into account such additional factors as the day of the week and socioeconomic status. It turned out that in the first few hours of exposure to the body, particles can cause malfunctions in the heart.
