The month of February is often associated with cupid, love and hearts so I thought it was also a good time to brush up on the signs of a heart attack. The information below is taken from the American Heart Association’s website – http://www.heart.org. Please visit their website for more comprehensive information on all things related to your heart!
Warning Signs of a Heart Attack
Don’t wait to get help if you experience any of these heart attack warning signs. Some heart attacks are sudden and intense. But most start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. Pay attention to your body and call 911 if you experience:
Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes – or it may go away and then return. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.
Discomfort in other areas of the upper body. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
Shortness of breath. This can occur with or without chest discomfort.
Other signs. Other possible signs include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness
As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and back or jaw pain.

"My wife and I met Zach over a year ago when we "cold-called" the office on a Saturday morning. Zach answered and by the time we arrived had lined-up about 8 properties to look at. He was personable and knowledgeable and we knew that day we were in good hands. Over the course of the next 12+ months we met with him periodically and exchanged a lot of email and phone calls until we finally found what we were looking for. When we briefly considered looking outside Grand County Zach remained helpful and encouraging so it was clear he was sincerely interested in just helping us find the right place for our needs. Zach is knowledgeable about the market and is constantly searching for new information to benefit he and his clients. I have nothing but positive things to say about this guy and I will recommend him to anyone considering property in Grand County."
