Do you know that these warning signs of a Heart Attack are different in men and women?

For men the look for these 4 signs

1: Chest Pain, Pressure, Squeezing, and Fullness. 
2: Arm, Back, Neck, Jaw, or Stomach Pain or Discomfort. 
3: Shortness of Breath, Nausea, and Lightheadedness.
4: Breaking Out in a Cold Sweat.

For women

1: Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest. It lasts more than a few minutes or goes away and comes back.
2: Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
3: Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.
4: Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.

As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain.
