Heart disease affects women of all ages.
The symptoms can be somewhat silent or not what many women may normally associate with heart disease. The symptoms of heart disease in women also may differ from those experienced by men.
The Mayo Clinic says the most common heart attack symptom in women is a type of pain or discomfort in the chest.
However, women also may experience seemingly unrelated symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sweating, unusual fatigue, abdominal discomfort, or lightheadedness.
Recognizing these symptoms can help women get early treatment that may save their lives.
