If your heart is having less blood that normally this will mean that the lungs as well will not be getting the amount of oxygen that they were having before so this results with having short breath.
If it happens that your arteries are not getting and distributing the amount of blood they usually do have then a lot of complications may happen because our muscles will not get the necessary thing which may lead you to fall down, so be really careful.

- Flu or cold symptoms
The symptoms of flu or cold may be happening several days before having a heart attack so don’t ignore them. All of these signs deserve proper attention so do not wait and if you notice something consult with your doctor.
