If you see any of these symptoms, get to see a doctor or hospital as soon as possible.
Pain in the centre of the chest. Women may feel uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain in the central part of chest. It may last more than a few minutes or disappears then reappears.
Back, neck, jaw, or stomach pain or discomfort in one or both limbs.
Shortness of breath that may or may not be accompanied by chest discomfort.
Other symptoms include a chilly sweat, nausea, and lightheadedness.
The most common symptom of a heart attack in women is chest pain or discomfort, much like in men. However, several of the other typical symptoms, such as shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, and back or jaw discomfort, are more common in women than in males.
