Nearly half of all people who've had a heart attack might not even know they had one.
A new study found that among participants, 45 percent of heart attacks were silent, meaning they happened without any symptoms.
And even though there are no symptoms, a silent heart attack can raise the risk of dying from heart disease by more than three times.
