Heart attack: Cold sweats, and you know it's not menopause

Unexplained or excessive sweating, or breaking out into a "cold sweat," can be a sign of heart attack.

If you have any one of these symptoms and it lasts for more than five minutes, call 9-1-1 for emergency medical care. Even if your symptoms go away in less than five minutes, call your doctor right away—it could be a sign that a heart attack is coming soon. Don't waste time trying home remedies or waiting for the feelings to pass on their own. Remember, quick treatment can save your life.
