Heart Attack Warning Signs
· 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 area of the upper body. Symptoms can include pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
· Shortness of breath. This feeling can occur with or without chest discomfort.
· Other signs. These may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
As with men, women’s most heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, and back or jaw pain.
Call 9-1-1 Immediately if you experience any of these symptoms!
