When it comes to recognizing the symptoms of a heart attack, women may have some difficulty. So what should they know?
The classic signs
The classic signs of a heart attack as they usually appear in men include:
- Pain that crushes the chest.
- Pain that radiates in the neck, shoulders and jaw.
- Shortness of breath and sensation of empty head.
- Nausea and vomiting.
Admittedly, these symptoms of heart attack can occur in women. However, a heart problem in them usually appears more gradually, and with symptoms that can be related to other things.
