What Are the Symptoms?

Women’s heart attack symptoms differ from men’s. Here they are (courtesy of the Cardiovascular Institute at Washington Adventist Hospital):

Chest pain, which may be vague and at other sites than the heart (such as the jaw, the neck, the back, or the stomach area).

Breathlessness or having trouble catching your breath.

Chronic fatigue that is unusual and overwhelming.

Dizziness, unexplained light-headedness, or even blackouts.

Edema (swelling, especially in ankles and/or lower legs).

Fluttering or rapid heartbeats.

Gastric upset or nausea.
