Clammy skin can also be one of the symptoms associated with a heart attack. A heart attack occurs when a blood clot blocks one of your coronary arteries. Coronary arteries take blood and oxygen to your heart muscle. If your heart muscle doesn’t get enough blood or oxygen, your heart muscle cells will die and your heart won’t work the way it should. Call 911 or go to an emergency room if you believe you’re having a heart attack.

Shock is commonly thought of as the response to emotional distress, or a sudden fright in response to a traumatic event. However, in medical terms, it occurs when you don’t have enough blood circulating in your body. Shock is your body’s response to a sudden drop in blood pressure.

Nine times out of ten the thing described as clammy is a hand or forehead, usually of someone who's pretty sick or just physically unpleasant. When Dickens' David Copperfield shakes the hand of the creepy Uriah Heep he exclaims, "But oh, what a clammy hand his was! As ghostly to the touch as to the sight!" Clammy can also refer to the air or atmosphere of a place, if it's particularly damp. Clammy skin can be a symptom of an emergency situation. Seek immediate medical care (call 911) if you, or someone you are with, have symptoms including bluish coloration of the lips, fingernails and mucous membranes(cyanosis); chest pain or discomfort; confusion or loss of consciousness, even for a brief moment; difficulty breathing; dizziness, lightheadedness or faintness; little or no urine output; profuse sweating; shortness of breath; or weak pulse.
