Heart Attack Symptoms in Women

‘I thought I had the flu.’

Heart attack symptoms in women

Heart Disease is the number one killer of women in the United States, but women will often minimize symptoms and pass them off as heartburn, the flu or just normal changes as they age. Even if the signs are subtle, it can be deadly. That is why it is important to get help right away.

If you experience any of these signs, call 911 and get to a hospital immediately. Do not try to drive yourself to the hospital if you think you are having a heart attack.
