If you ever felt that your body is run down. Maybe more tired than usual, tightness in chest, felt like you might pass out, while being confused. These are actual signs of dehydration. However, they are signs of a heart attack as well.
Why does dehydration occur? It occurs when the water intake in the body is less than the water loss in the body. And there are mild cases such as one might be too hot and did not drink enough water that day and once they replenish the water everything will turn back to normal. Than there are other signs that are severe when the water intake was much less for a couple of days and that individual will end up in the hospital. The symptoms can be as I stated above along with a rapid heartbeat and rapid breathing. A person could collapse, so these are signs to pay attention to. The person's mouth and skin could be very dry, decrease in urine. Along with a headache, constipation, and dizziness.
However, a heart attack come have symptoms closely related. These are signs that should be watched heart palpitations, chest discomfort could feel like squeezing, tightness, and painful. Also, accompanied by dizziness, shortness of breath, and confusion.
Please pay attention if you experience any of these symptoms.
