Heart attack in women Symptoms and symptoms


Medicine Author: Melissa Conrad Shteppler, MD

The classic symptoms of a heart attack include a feeling of strong pressure on the chest and chest pain, including pressure or complete sensation. This can be accompanied by pain in one or both hands, jaw, back, stomach or neck. Other symptoms of heart attack include shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, sweating and a feeling often described as a breakthrough in a cold sweat. Although pain and chest pain are characteristic symptoms, women experience a heart attack more often than men, which does not occur in this typical diet. Instead, some women with heart attacks may experience more symptoms, such as dizziness, nausea, severe fatigue, fainting, dizziness or higher back pressure. Due to the absence of typical symptoms associated with heart attacks in men, many women who suffer from heart attacks, believe that symptoms are caused by another condition, such as influenza or gastroesophageal reflux disease.

Causes of heart attack in women


Heart disease, particularly coronary heart disease, is the leading cause of heart attack in women and men. Atherosclerosis is a gradual process in which cholesterol plaques (deposits) are deposited in the walls of the arteries. This is called "hardening of the arteries". Coronary atherosclerosis (or coronary artery disease) refers to atherosclerosis, leading to narrowing and hardening of the coronary arteries. Diseases caused by decreased blood supply to the cardiac muscle of coronary atherosclerosis are called coronary heart disease (CHD) and include a heart attack, in which not enough oxygen-rich blood, the heart muscle itself transmitted. Symptoms of angina develop when there is a lack of blood supply to the heart muscles. These symptoms (chest pain and pressure) at rest are rarely due to coronary artery spasms (a condition called Prinzmetal Syndrome or a variant of it).
