Women's Heart Health
Women may have different symptoms of heart disease than men, including:
- Shortness of breath
- Unusual fatigue
- Acid indigestion or heartburn
- Back pain
- Lower chest discomfort
The classic symptoms of crushing chest pain with radiation to the neck and jaw, profound sweating, and shortness of breath don’t always occur in women. Also a woman’s symptoms may not be associated with strenuous activity or stressful circumstances.
