Early Warning Signs and Symptoms of Heart Attack in Men


A couple days ago, my husband came home from work at around 10:00 a.m which was unusual. Immediately he told me that he was going to the Emergency room for a check up. He thought that he was going to have a heart attack. That morning while getting himself for work, he felt weird in his body. He was light headed and felt dizzy and he also felt a tingly sensation in his left arm that kind of going through all his body. Though it disappeared but it happened again when he was at worked at around 9:00 a.m. and that’s when he decided to go home.

We went to our daughter’s school to picked her up. When we got to the emergency room, were fortunately as we did not wait too long which was most of the time is the case. We are thankful and grateful to hubby’s doctor and nurses for being so attentive. They did the blood works, CT, MRI, X-Ray twice and ECG for his heart. When all the results came back, it was all negative which made us so happy and so thakful to GOD! :)

I am so proud of my husband for not waiting until his situation get worst. His dad past away because of a heart problem. I could tell that my husband was really scaredt though his symptoms was so mild compared to other people with a heart problem. So, if you feel something weird or not normal to your health. Don’t think twice, see your doctor, make an appointment and get those answers and exams. Prevention is always better than  cure.

So, here below are the symptoms and signs for heart attack in men. I thought men and women would have the same signs but I was wrong.

  • pain, fullness, and/or squeezing sensation of the chest;
  • jaw pain, toothache, headache;
  • shortness of breath;
  • nausea, vomiting, and/or general epigastric (upper middle abdomen) discomfort;
  • sweating;
  • heartburn and/or indigestion;
  • arm pain (more commonly the left arm, but may be either arm);
  • upper back pain;
  • general malaise (vague feeling of illness); and
  • no symptoms (approximately one quarter of all heart attacks are silent, without chest pain or new symptoms and silent heart attacks are especially common among patients with diabetes mellitus).

Tips on How to Start Your Morning off Right


Let’s be honest: not all of us are morning people. There are some days where we slam the snooze button (or the ‘dismiss’ button on our cell phones), only to roll over in bed, lay underneath a series of comfortable blankets, and wake up a half hour to a full hour later. Sometimes this even results in quite a few of us getting into work much later than we were anticipating, which is never a good thing for our reputations.

When you think about your daily morning routine, there is a very high potential that caffeine—or coffee—are on your agenda in some form. Not many of us can function very well without a decent amount of energy, which is exactly what caffeine, tea, or coffee can supply for us. Of course, we cannot forget about breakfast, which is the most important meal out of the entire day. Whether you are serving up pancakes or eating a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich, there is nothing more crucial than breakfast in the morning.

Why is it that so many Americans skimp out on breakfast? According to the Huffington Post, over 31 million Americans skip breakfast every day. The results indicated that men and women from 18 to 34 years old are much more likely to skip breakfast than any other age group, women more than men. Their logic for skipping breakfast includes the following:

  • They weren’t hungry
  • They didn’t feel like eating
  • They were too busy to eat

Although many of us can relate to this feeling, it doesn’t have to be this way. Instead, mornings can be something to look forward to instead, despite how rough they can be. Here are a few tips to help start your morning off the right way.

1. Make sure you have great food ready for you to eat in the morning, such as eggs, toast, and whatever else you enjoy eating (it could be cereal, for instance). Also, don’t forget to invest in a coffeemaker if you do not already have one. If your coffeemaker needs accessories such as Krups coffee maker parts, then don’t hesitate to purchase them. This will make it easier for you to get up early in the morning.

2. Find reasons to wake up early, such as cuddling with your kids. Instead of sleeping in an extra hour, think about all of the bonding time you could have with your children. You’d be surprised how much an extra hour of time will do to create more memories.

3. Get up and read an inspirational quote every day. This one inspirational quote will help you to get through the busy day and will keep you feeling more and more positive.

Your mornings don’t have to be difficult or feared any more. It’s truly amazing how much difference waking up just a half an hour or an hour earlier will do to make you feel more alert and ready to take on the stress of everyday life. These few tips will assist you in making your morning easier and brighter.

What Causes Vomiting to Kids

I have been asking this because my daughter was been vomiting in Monday night. When she got home from school that afternoon, she was hungry and want a piece of cake, I did gave her and she put some chocolate syrup, loved it and wanted more. She had another sliced of cake. Dinner time, she had flounder fish, green  beans and some baked chicken in her plate.

It was time for bed, she started saying about her tummy ache, went to the bathroom and stayed for awhile. She did thrown up and pooped, went back to bed and that was not the end. She was going back and forth to the bathroom and was throwing up. I was so proud of her, being 6 years old, she did not bothered me to help her.

The next morning, I did not sent her to school for I knew she had a sleepless night and for sure was tired. Indeed, I was right, she got up at 9:15 a.m. that morning which was really late. The whole Tuesday she did not throw up but when we went outside to take advantage of the beautiful day, after we got back from the outside she started not feeling good. She throw up again.

I wonder if it has something to do with the foods that she had eaten Monday night. She did not had her dinner last night. When I got online and did some researched. I found one reason that made sense to me,  a child might eat or drunk too much. In this part, I would say, she ate too much cake and had two fish. So, she had to vomit the surplus.

There are other reasons but those does not make sense. I believed she ate too much. I hope she did not throw up at school today.

Discover the Different Styles and Colors of Accordions

My little girl who is 6 years old had a chat the other night and frankly, she knew more musical instruments than I do. Funny but it’s true. She liked music and she is interested in almost all instruments. She mentioned that when she grow up, she wants to play an “hohner accordion” I had no clue what it look like. Anyway, since I had no clue about the said instrument, I got online and searched for it. I found the store where they sells it and they have the lower price guaranteed for their customers. I told myself that if I can afford it, I might get one for my girl’s birthday. Practicing in advance is always good.
