Although most Americans know the dangers of a heart attack, many do not know that the symptoms of this dangerous event can differ significantly between men and women. Women, for example, may not feel the signature chest pain and pressure that is common in men suffering from a cardiac event.
In this video, you can learn more about heart attack symptoms common in women and how to recognize them. Unlike the more dramatic symptoms of heart attack seen on television and in the movies, women are often struck by a different and subtler set of symptoms.
