Avoid rubbing or massaging the frostbitten area as doing so may cause more damage. Do not use a heating pad, heat lamp, or the heat of a stove, fireplace, or radiator for warming since affected areas are numb and can be easily burned.
There are numerous risk factors for heart attack, including high cholesterol, being male, and smoking cigarettes,
but did you know heart attacks are more common in the winter? Cold lowers the heart's supply of blood, while exertion raises the demand for it. This imbalance between supply and demand can also cause attacks of chest pain.
Even in people who don't have heart disease, cold exposure can raise blood pressure. Additionally, your heart must
work harder to conserve body heat when it ıs cold. This rerouting causes extra blood flow to the vital organs and
boosts the blood pressure. As an extra note, cholesterol levels are highest in the winter and lowest in the summer
season, which may also contribute to heart attacks during winter.
Watch out: The warning signs for a heart attack include chest pain, shortness of breath, sudden fatigue, dizziness, sweating, nausea, vomiting, irregular heartbeat, and a blue tinge to your skin.
