Important Signs of Heart Attacks for Women

Symptoms for heart attacks in women vary from signs in males so it is important to know what to look for as more and more women are affected by dangerous attacks. For instance, some women can experience pain in their shoulders and back as an only symptom.

While it is typically thought that symptoms of a heart attack were pain in the left arm, chest pressure and shortness of breath, those are mainly attributed to men and signs of heart attacks in women can be more subtle. If you think you are experiencing abnormal breathing patterns or have unusual pain around your shoulders, contact your doctor to be safe.
