Most people associate heart attack symptoms with chest pain, pain in the shoulder, or other well-known signs. However, according to renowned cardiologist Dr. Chauncey Crandall, there are some signs that are so minor, many people ignore them or chalk them up to symptoms of a less threatening ailment.
Each year, about 785,000 Americans suffer a first heart attack. And 470,000 more people who’ve already had at least one attack suffer yet another one. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. In fact, it kills more men and women each year than all cancers combined, and is responsible for nearly a third of all deaths.
Because of these factors, heart health is crucial for Americans. This is particularly true for those over 35, many of whom already have the early stages of cardiovascular disease without even realizing it.
And as stated before, when it comes to symptoms, most people think of chest pain, or perhaps pain in the left shoulder or arm. But there are other, less obvious signs that you could be experiencing a heart attack. Click here to see these hidden heart attack symptoms.
Unfortunately, 25 percent of all heart attacks happen “silently,” without clear or obvious signs. Common symptoms may be so mild or vague as to seem unrelated to the heart.

Dr. Crandall, chief of the cardiac transplant program at the world-renowned Palm Beach Cardiovascular Clinic in Florida, practices on the front lines of interventional, vascular, and transplant cardiology.
“Most adults, especially those entering middle age, are basically sitting ducks when it comes to heart disease and attacks,” Dr. Crandall warns. “That’s unfortunate, because heart disease is totally unnecessary. With the proper knowledge of warning signs and potential symptoms, and a few simple steps, it can be prevented, reversed, even cured.”
In his free heart health video
, Dr. Crandall discusses a number of simple strategies and tips to help prevent, reverse, and even cure heart disease. These are the very same strategies he uses with his own patients, who invest a great deal of time and money traveling to see him from all over the United States and several foreign countries.
And in this special heart health video presentation
, Dr. Crandall also shares the real-life story of a “widow-maker” heart attack, a story personal to his own life.
“The information on this heart video
could save your life,” said Newsmax Health Publisher Travis Davis. “At the very least, it could help you recognize the signs and know the symptoms to prevent severe, expensive, and debilitating heart disease problems down the road.”
