4.  Sweating

It is a common symptom of a coming heart attack to break out in a cold sweat (unless you are sitting in a very hot room or going through menopause). If you are sitting, standing, or not doing anything strenuous, but you suddenly break out in drenching sweat, call 911 right away. This is much more common than you think. Many people want to lie down, but do so only after calling 911.


5. Anxiety

Many survivors state that they had feelings of impending doom or anxiety attacks just before their heart attacks happened. Although many people with anxiety attacks believe that they are having a heart attack, it is better to be safe than sorry. Call 911.
