A heart attack occurs when an artery supplying your heart with blood and oxygen becomes blocked. Fatty deposits build up over time, forming plaques in your heart’s arteries. If a plaque ruptures, a blood clot can form and block your arteries, causing a heart attack. Common symptoms include nausea, indigestion, heartburn, abdominal pain, shortness of breath, cold sweat, fatigue or sudden dizziness, but even your mood, sleep schedule, and your neighborhood could put your heart in trouble.
