Heart Attack Symptoms Differ In Women!

Heart Attack Symptoms Differ In Women!



A Baby Boomer Women Alert

By Boomeryearbook.com

Traditionally, when we think of a heart attack we think of crushing pain in the chest that seems to radiate down the left arm. While these may be the classic symptoms for men, they are not always the symptoms of a woman’s heart attack. It is a good idea for baby boomer women and women of all ages to be aware of the common symptoms that psychological articles and research tell us women typically experience. Knowing the symptoms is vital as heart disease seems to be something more and more echo boomer women and baby boomer and elderly women are experiencing. It is imperative that baby boomer women become aware of the symptoms and teach the young women in their lives what symptoms to look for as more young women are experiencing heart attacks due to poor diet and stress, and young women should be aware of the symptoms in order to assist their elderly family members that may, without realizing it, be having a heart attack.

It is a scary, but unfortunately not uncommon fact that even emergency workers may not realize a woman is having a heart attack. Typically, a flashing light ambulance is not sent when a woman complains of nausea. Neither is priority given to women who are experiencing nausea when they visit the emergency room triage. To make matters worse, according to the Mansfield News Journal, nearly 43 percent of women never have chest pain before a heart attack! Generally, women are more likely to experience shortness of breath along with the nausea and maybe something that feels more like heartburn. They may also experience pain in the upper back between the shoulder blades or in the abdomen.

So, baby boomer women, be on the lookout for any unusual symptoms you may be experiencing. After all, you know your body better than anyone else. If you experience the classic symptoms of a heart attack that men typically experience, by all means, get to the emergency room. If you experience unusual symptoms like the ones described above you also need to get to the emergency room quickly. Let the emergency personal know that you think you may be experiencing a heart attack, especially if you have a history of heart problems or heart disease in your family. Make sure that they know how important it is not to dismiss it as something less minor.
