Heart Attach/Heart Disease is the #1 killer – what to look for
Women are more likely than men to have back or neck pain, heartburn, and shortness of breath. They tend to have stomach trouble, including an upset stomach, feeling queasy, and throwing up. They may also feel very tired, light-headed, or dizzy. A couple of weeks before a heart attack, a woman might have flu-like symptoms and sleep problems.
About 435,000 women have heart attacks in the U.S. each year. Symptoms can be so mild they’re often dismissed as something minor.
