Symptoms and Signs of a Heart Attack in Females

Unusual Fatigue: Feeling very tired or weak all of a sudden for no clear reason could be a sign that something is wrong.

Shortness of Breath: If you feel out of breath or have trouble breathing, especially when you're not doing much or when you're at rest, you should get medical help.

Chest Pain: Women may feel pain, tightness, pressure, or burning in the chest that comes and goes. Chest pain is normal.

Pain in Other Areas: Women may be having a heart attack if they feel pain or discomfort in their back, neck, jaw, or upper belly. Many people often mistake this pain or discomfort for indigestion or muscle strain.

Cold Sweats and Dizziness: If you suddenly start to sweat, feel lightheaded, or dizzy, especially if you have other symptoms, it could mean that your heart isn't working right.

Nausea or Vomiting: If you feel sick or throw up, especially if you don't have any stomach problems, it could mean that you're about to have a heart attack.

Unexplained Anxiety: If a woman feels a lot of anxiety or like bad things are going to happen for no clear reason, it could be a sign that her heart isn't working right.
