Heart attack

If you suddenly found yourself experiencing chest pain, discomfort in one or both arms, or shortness of breath, alarm bells might immediately sound in your mind alerting you of these telltale signs of a heart attack.

But what if you felt nauseous, exhausted, weak, or like you had a bad cold? Heart attack symptoms in women can be different than in men, and women, in particular, are often unaware they're having a heart attack when it happens.
