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    
    • Nausea
    • 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.
