Heart Attacks are very different for women than for men, but most women don't know this. It's important that every woman learn about how heart attack symptoms differ for them. Here are the main symptoms:

1. Pain, pressure, or fullness in the center of your chest

2. Pain or discomfort in arm, back, neck, jaw, or stomach.

3. Shortness of breath

4. Cold sweat, nausea, or lightheadedness

5. Fatigue

Men and women can both include chest pain and discomfort, but women are more likely than men to have shortness of breath, pressure in the lower chest, dizziness, lighteheadedness, and extreme fatigue. Women often mistake a coming heart attack for the flu or acide reflux.
