Heart Attack Symptoms in Women

Standard

Hi There –

Today marks the official end of my Spring Break (booo). I spent it working out and relearning math, which I bet you think is extremely enthralling. Life of a graduate student.

I just finished perusing an article that focused on heart attack symptoms in women, and it is something I deem important. Thus, the information is getting passed on to you. Read it carefully, because heart attacks aren’t bias medical mishaps; they can happen to anyone. You could be the picture of health or the quintessential couch potato… it doesn’t matter. Of course, the less healthy you are, the more prone you can possibly be.

Fact: according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the leading killer of women in the United States. In 2009, it was responsible for 1 out of every 4 female deaths. Also, close to 2/3 of women who die suddenly of coronary heart disease show no prior symptoms.

Some of the signs mentioned were as follows:
– Tooth Pain
– Back Pain
– Vomiting
– Unusual Sweating
– Nausea
– Chest Discomfort (pain OR pressure)
– Profound, Abnormal Fatigue

Of course, it can be difficult to pick up on these symptoms since they can quite easily be confused with other health issues and ailments, or simply ignored. BUT if you do find yourself with any of these symptoms, don’t take it lightly, especially if they get worse with exercise. Call your doctor or get a ride to the ER – you’d much rather be safe than sorry.

About azuremarie

Bonjour, I'm Azure; a healthy dose of eccentricity best taken with a grain of salt. Most people describe me as sassy, and I like that. I love words, and think that anyone who can twist them in their mouth and make something beautiful come out is sexy and someone with whom I want to spend my time. I read a lot (bordering on too much), and am baller at boggle. I happen to be addicted to concerts/live music, and will listen to anything that can carry a beat, and even those that don't. I believe that being normal is boring, and love bright colors. I have a soft spot for animals, particularly dogs and horses, but I am beginning to be a cat person as well. Sometimes, I will admit that I like some animals better than some people - they're great listeners and don't judge. J'adore voyager. Someday I want to be able to look at a map of the world and say "I have been there, there, and there... and there", and have a memory attached to them all. I've recently begun to work at an organic juice bar, and diet/holistic health is starting to become a main passion of mine. I want to be able to experience our world, as well as help save it. Oh, and unicorns exist.
