The symptoms of heart disease can be different in women vs. men

The symptoms of heart disease can be different in women vs. men, and are often misunderstood. Sometimes, women can have a heart attack without chest pain. Women are more likely than men to have heart attack symptoms unrelated to chest pain, such as:
■ Neck, jaw, shoulder, upper back or abdominal discomfort
■ Shortness of breath
■ Pain in one or both arms
■ Nausea or vomiting
■ Sweating
■ Lightheadedness or dizziness
■ Unusual fatigue
