    Heart Attack Signs in Women

    Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest. It lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.
    Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
    Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.
    Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
    As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain.
    If you have any of these signs, don’t wait more than five minutes before calling for help. Call 9-1-1 and get to a hospital right away.
