Women experience heart attacks differently then men do. Their symptoms can be much more subtle and gradually progressive. 

Typical early symptoms for women can include:

  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing and pain in the center of your chest. 
  • Arm pain
  • Jaw pain
  • Cold sweats
  • Shortness of breath
