Know The Signs of a Heart Attack

Heart attacks don't always come on suddenly, like you may see in the movies or on TY. Many heart attacks start slowly, with only mild pain or discomfort.

All too often, people aren't sure what's wrong and wait too long before getting help. Know the signs of a heart attack.
