Heart attack symptoms are not always the same for women as men. If women are unaware of their risks, they won’t be alert about identifying them. As in men, chest pain can occur in women. But here’s a rundown on the other symptoms they may experience:
  • Indigestion
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating
  • Confusion or anxiety
  • Burning in the chest
  • Fainting
  • Pain in the jaw
  • Backache
  • Neck ache
Women should make sure they know these symptoms and keep them uppermost in their minds.
