Dr. Oz: Could You Have a Heart Attack and Not Know It?
Dr. Oz talked about how almost one third of heart attacks have symptoms that go unrecognized by the person having the attack. It’s called a silent heart attack.
The coronary arteries bring life to the heart by bringing oxygen and blood to the tissues of the heart. But over time, when a blockage builds up, the oxygen and blood can’t get to the tissue. Normally, this bruises the heart and causes a heart attack. You feel like an elephant is sitting on you and the pain radiates to the neck and left shoulder.
