The symptoms of a heart attack in women can be different and more subtle than in men. In addition to chest pain, which is the most common sign in both women and men, women are more likely to have at least one of these other signs: • Jaw Pain • Nausea & Indigestion • Unusual Fatigue • Dizziness • Backache • Shortness of breath

Women often brush off their symptoms BUT also women’s symptoms are brushed off by doctors – we at UofL Health – Women’s Heart Program provide you with the safe space to talk about your symptoms and get you the attention you deserve.
