Would you know you were having a heart attack?

Men and women can both suffer the well-known tightness in the chest. However, sleep deprivation and anxiety are also symptoms for women. Did you know this? So would you know you were having a heart attack?

According to Joseph Fritz the symptoms of a heart attack can vary wildly between men and women.

Both men and women can suffer chest tightness and pain or pressure in the chest, neck, jaw, arms or back. Unusual fatigue, shortness of breath, coughing, feeling sick and vomiting are also symptoms experienced by both genders.

Male symptoms;
– weakness
– breaking into a cold sweat
– dizziness

Female symptoms;
– sleep disturbance
– anxiety
– indigestion

Although this is a good starting point, Dr Fritz also urged people to remember each heart attack is different and as a result everyone’s symptoms will be slightly different.

Always remember, never ignore any possible symptoms of a heart attack, and get medical attention immediately.
