Do You Know the Signs and Symptoms of a Heart Attack?
Many patients may not know they are having a heart attack, and instead think they are experiencing acid reflux symptoms or a stomach ache. Additionally, symptoms in women are often different than in men. This is why it is incredibly important to learn the signs and symptoms of a heart attack, and know when to call 911. If you think you might be having a heart attack, you should immediately call 911 to give yourself the best chance at survival and recovery.

Heart attack symptoms can include:
- Chest pain or pressure, though some women may experience a heart attack without this symptom.
- Pain that radiates to the jaw, neck, back, or left arm or shoulder.
- Feelings of fatigue and/or anxiety.
- Indigestion accompanied by shortness of breath.
- Nausea or vomiting, sometimes accompanied by dizziness.
