Breaking out into a sudden sweat for no apparent reason is actually a common symptom of a heart attack but many are unaware of this.
Sweating profusely when you don’t have a fever and are not exerting yourself or in a hot environment – especially if accompanied by other symptoms including light-headedness, shortness of breath, nausea, or chest pain – may be a symptom of a heart attack.
Excessive sweating is one of the earliest warning signs of a heart attack.
If some of the body’s arteries are clogged with fatty deposits, the heart needs to work harder to make sure blood is pumped around the body.
The result is excessive sweating and is a symptom of a heart attack.
