How Do Heart Attack Symptoms Vary for Men and Women?
Did you know that men and women experience heart attacks differently? Women tend to mistaken heart attack signs for something else (indigestion, the flu) where as men are more likely to realize they are having a heart attack and then ask for help more quickly. Women tend to think they are not really having a heart attack and to procrastinate getting help.
Signs Both Men and Women Experience During a Heart Attack
Both men and women will experience the following symptoms when having a heart attack:
Pains in the chest (and possibly radiating out from the chest)
Rapid heart beat
Signs More Commonly Presented in Men
Men typically experience more obvious symptoms when having a heart attack. They usually feel a more sudden and evident onset of symptoms in ways that are easier to define as heart attack symptoms. For example, most men will feel:
Crushing chest pain
Searing pain that spreads into the left shoulder and arm
Difficulty breathing, as if someone had dropped a set of dumbbells on their chest and left it there
Signs More Commonly Presented in Women
Women often feel milder symptoms that don’t seem so obviously related to a heart attack. Because of this, women often delay getting help. Sometimes the symptoms escalate suddenly, and the person is unable to ask for help in time, but many times the symptoms do not escalate. Some women have heart attacks without experiencing chest pain at all.
Women typically experience the following symptoms before the crushing chest pain begins:
Tightness in her chest
Chest Pain Basics
Unfortunately, many people experience angina, which is chest pain related to exertion. Angina usually goes away when you stop exerting yourself, and angina on its own is not necessarily indicative of a heart attack. In fact, many heart attack survivors experience angina regularly, which can cause serious anxiety and panic.
Angina is caused by one of two things: either a blockage in your coronary arteries or a spasm of the coronary arteries. While an obstruction is quite serious, a spasm can cause pain without any cause for concern. Unfortunately, there is no way to know for sure if the problem is serious or not just by how much or how little pain you feel.
What to Do if Someone You Know is Having a Heart Attack
If you think you or someone you know is having a heart attack, call 911 immediately. Give the patient an aspirin (with water) and ask them to chew it. Insist on staying with them until you are sure the issue is angina instead of a heart attack.
