Heart Disease is the #1 Killer of Women
This is What a Heart Attack Feels Like to a Woman
(CHEST PAIN, DISCOMFORT, PRESSURE OR SQUEEZING, LIKE THERE’S A TON OF WEIGHT ON YOU)
Other Heart Attack Symptoms to Watch Out For:
• Shortness of breath
• Light-headedness or sudden dizziness
• Unusual upper body pain, or discomfort in one or both arms,
back, shoulder, neck, jaw or upper part of the stomach
• Unusual fatigue
• Breaking out in a cold sweat
If you experience any one of these symptoms,
don’t make excuses for them. Make the call to 9-1-1. Don’t
miss a beat.
Although women often think of heart attack as something
that affects mainly men, heart disease is the number one
killer of women. Every 90 seconds, a woman in the United
States has a heart attack. The Office on Women’s Health has
launched a new campaign to educate women about the symptoms
of a heart attack.
