Many heart symptoms don’t even happen in the chest, and it’s not always predictable to tell what’s going on. So what are the signs of a heart attack?

Some people may vomit when having a heart attack. Women are found to be more likely to complain about this type of signs than men are.

  • Snoring
  • Sweating
  • A cough that won’t quit
  • Swollen organs
  • Irregular heartbeat
