Rapper French Montana was recently hospitalized with intense nausea, abdominal pain and an elevated heart rate - common warning signs of a heart attack. It is estimated that a heart attack occurs in the U.S. every 40 seconds.

Some patients report heart attacks without any signs or symptoms (S/S). But warning signs are most likely missed because the patient doesn't associate his symptoms with a heart attack.

Knowing the warning signs of a heart attack can save your life

A heart attack feels different for men and women.

Men may describe crushing pain or pressure in the chest area, left arm pain or tingling and shortness of breath.

Women may describe feeling slight discomfort in the chest, upper back pain, nausea and vomiting or jaw pain that feels like a toothache.

Warning Signs of Heart Attack in men

  • crushing chest pain or pressure in chest
  • back pain that radiates up to neck
  • jaw pain that feels like a toothache
  • pain in left arm or both arms or shoulders
  • nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain
  • cold sweat
  • lightheadedness or dizziness
  •  

    Warning Signs of Heart Attack in Women

  • slight to moderate discomfort in chest
  • upper back pain
  • neck and jaw pain
  • shortness of breath that comes on suddenly
  • lightheaded or dizziness
  • jaw, neck or back pain
  • burning or tingling in left arm or both arms or shoulders
  • nausea or vomiting, abdominal pain
  •  

    Heart attack treatment works best when started immediately after symptoms are felt. Paramedics arrive with equipment and drugs ready to begin heart attack treatment. If you believe you are experiencing a heart attack, it's safer to call 911 rather than attempt to drive yourself to the emergency room.

    Montana was released from the hospital last week under doctor's orders to remain on bed rest for 30 days. He claimed his cardiac symptoms were related to the celebrity disorder "dehydration and exhaustion".

    The rapper's camp denies rumors that he had a heart attack caused by a history of drug use.

    Montana is the CEO and founder of Cocaine City Records. His debut album, Excuse My French, was released in 2013.

    In an Instagram post, the rapper celebrated the release of his new album, titled Montana. "The music is keepin my spirit alive," he told fans.

    In another Instagram post that showed him doing pushups on the hospital floor, Montana wrote "CANT KEEP ME DOWN !!"

    Rapper French Montana released another hospital photo to promote his upcoming album, Montana, set to drop on Dec. 6.

    In the photo posted on Instagram.com Tuesday, Montana is seen doing pushups on the floor of a hospital room. A handicap toilet sits against a wall in the background. EKG leads are attached to his chest.

    The caption reads:

    "CANT KEEP ME DOWN !!
    Been workin hard on my new album and I'm so proud to announce it's coming THIS FRIDAY !!! #MONTANA The music is keepin my spirit alive ???? THANK YOU to my fans, love y’all for ridin with me thru this journey".

    This is the 2nd hospital photo the rapper has released in a week, prompting his followers to accuse him of using his hospital stay as a publicity stunt for his album.

    The 35-year-old rapper was hospitalized on Nov. 21, after he collapsed at home and complained of abdominal/chest pain, nausea and shortness of breath. Medics who responded to his home reported he had an elevated heart rate (palpitations).

    It's the day after Thanksgiving - traditionally Black Friday in America - when most Americans hit the malls to take advantage of after Thanksgiving sales.

    Rapper French Montana is thankful to be out of intensive care and in a regular hospital room for the holidays. He posted an image on Instagram.com that shows his fresh haircut after spending 2 weeks in ICU in a San Fernando Valley hospital.

    Montana captioned the photo:

    "Thank you Everyone for all of the prayers, love and support. I’m finally out of ICU and am getting better one day at a time !!!"

    The rapper was hospitalized on Nov. 21, after he collapsed at home and complained of abdominal/chest pain, nausea and shortness of breath. Medics who responded to his home reported he had an elevated heart rate (palpitations).

    Some of Montana's fans were worried that the EKG monitor in his room shows his heart rate is still high at 127. But that heart rate is Ok if he's moving around. What doctors want to see is how quickly his heart rate returns to normal (60-100) while he's at rest.

    Montana's hospitalization comes a few weeks after the Moroccan rapper celebrated his 35th birthday in Africa. Rumors are swirling that Montana picked up a nasty infection that weakened his heart. This type of cardiac infection is potentially deadly. Montana's signs and symptoms can also be caused by narcotic abuse.

    Online sources say Montana's worried ex-girlfriend Khloe Kardashian checks up on him daily.

    Kim Kardashian and her little black dress

    If you don't believe celebrities read the blogs, look no further than Kim Kardashian's diminishing butt. Kardashian's loaded diaper look once drove the paparazzi into a frenzy. But those days are over as Kardashian got tired of all the diaper jokes, and had her malformed butt implants replaced. The blogs can be cruel when you don't quite measure up to their exacting standards. Now Kim looks more natural and thinner. Good job bloggers.
