Signs of a Heart Attack:
- Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest. It lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.
- Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
- Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.
- Other signs such as 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.
If you have any of these signs, don’t wait more than five minutes before calling for help. Call 9-1-1…Get to a hospital right away.
Stroke is the No. 3 cause of death in America. It’s also a major cause of severe, long-term disability. Stroke and TIA (transient ischemic attack) happen when a blood vessel feeding the brain gets clogged or bursts. The signs of a TIA are like a stroke but usually last only a few minutes. If you have any of these signs, don’t wait more than five minutes before calling for help.
Call 9-1-1 to get help fast if you have any of these, but remember that not all of these warning signs occur in every stroke.
Marci and I had a girl’s morning out today with Mini Me and Baby Sissy. We were invited to Mimi’s Cafe to help spread the word about Women’s Heart Disease. Once we arrived we were seated right away, considering how crowded their parking lot looked. We were also waited on promptly by our server. Only after he took our order did Marci ask about the soup promotion. I don’t know if he forgot to mention but it wasn’t brought up by him. So make sure you ask for your soup if you are wearing red! Marci went with tomato basil and said that it was very good. I went with corn chowder which was very hot and delicious! We did receive our meals rather quickly. We were on a tight schedule (we took more time than expected at the scrapbook store) so I was thankful for the quick service this time. I took my family back in November, you can read about my past Mimi’s Holiday Feast Post to see some of the other entree choices. For our meals we both went with the lunch combo, salads, and sandwiches, both were very good. I would get my turkey sandwich again.
On our way out, I had to pick up some muffins to take home. I went with the Red Velvet with white icing. Marci decided on a Banana Chocolate Chip for Mini Me and a Blueberry Muffin, which looked really good! I am saving mine for after dinner tonight…that’s if they last till then!
