Women’s Heart Disease

Women’s Heart Disease - Symptoms

Typical symptoms such as severe chest pain, cold sweat and giddiness can be experienced by both men and women. Women, however, are more likely to exhibit atypical symptoms such as:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Back, neck or jaw pain
  • Fatigue

Women are more likely to dismiss these symptoms, and less likely to see a doctor when symptoms of heart disease appear. This causes delays in diagnosis and treatment.
