Signs of Heart Attack: Different for Women

When you hear “heart attack” do you generally think “male?” Many people do – and that thinking could account for a few facts: research shows that women go to the hospital on average one full hour later than men do after experiencing a heart attack. And since every minute counts, delaying care may result in poorer outcome for women.

The classic symptoms – like acute pain, tightness, burning and a dull ache in the chest – are not the only ones that clue women in to the fact that they may be having a heart attack.

Here are some symptoms of a heart attack that are more typical for women:

shortness of breath

nausea or vomiting

dizziness

anxiety

back or jaw pain

pressure-like chest pain between the breasts

rapid heartbeats or palpitations

unusual tiredness
