Chest pain and shortness of breath are said to be some of the most common symptoms of heart attack. However, it is not that easy to determine a heart attack. Experts believe heart attack symptoms may vary depending on a person’s age, health profile and even gender.
Men and women are said to experience different ranges of symptoms associated with heart attack.
Men are likely to feel chest pain/pressure, upper body pain and discomfort, pain that spreads and radiates to the arm, left shoulder, back, neck, jaw, or stomach, irregular heart beat, dizziness and breaking out in cold sweats.
On the contrary, women may experience unusual fatigue lasting for several days, sleep disturbances, lightheadedness, shortness of breath, indigestion, jaw pain or pain that spreads up to your jaw, upper back, shoulder, or throat pain and chest pain and pressure, which may spread to your arm.
