National Wear Red Day

Each year, on the first Friday in February, millions of women and menwear red to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease.

Here are a few warning signs that you might be having a heart attack, courtesy of the American Heart Association:

Chest discomfort. Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or that goes away and comes back. It can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.

Discomfort in other areas of the upper body. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.

Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.

Other signs may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
