How to spot the signs of a heart attack in both women and men.

Heart Attack Signs in Females

It’s important for women to understand they are just as likely as men to have heart attacks — and their symptoms may be different. Women are less likely than men to believe they are having a heart attack.  And women are also more likely to delay seeking emergency treatment. 

Here are possible signs of a heart attack in women: 

  • Chest discomfort (which may feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain)
  • Cold sweat
  • Lightheadedness
  • Nausea
  • Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach
  • Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort

Women, diabetic patients and the elderly may present with unusual heart attack symptoms, such as:

  • Change in breathing
  • Nausea
  • Unexplained sweating
  • Vague, unusual sensation in the chest, arms, teeth, neck or back

Remember: "When in doubt, check it out." If you think you might be having a heart attack, call 911.

Heart Attack Signs in Males

Here are common signs of a heart attack in men:

  • Chest pressure
  • Cold sweat
  • Discomfort in the back, jaw or stomach
  • Lightheadedness
  • Nausea
