IDENTIFYING HEART ATTACK IN WOMEN

By Joann Olson. R.N.

Last week we discussed the prevalence of heart disease in women. So, what are the signs of heart attack and heart disease in women? We usually think of the individual who presents with symptoms of severe chest pain and clutching at their chest.  The symptoms in women can be very different from men.

  • Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.

  • Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.

  • Shortness of breath, with or without chest discomfort.

  • Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.

  • Believe it or not, these are all symptoms of a heart attack in women. They are also symptoms that women often brush off as the flu, stress or simply feeling under the weather—which could put their lives in jeopardy.

Recent studies focusing on African American women have shown there is increased risk for heart disease in women who identify increased stress in their lives, ignore their own health for their children and maintain the “super woman” type lifestyle. Being willing to acknowledge anger and emotional responses and having a social support system are positive factors that can potentially reduce some of the risk for heart disease.

More next week on actions you can take to reduce your risk of heart disease and heart attack or stroke.
