Weekly Health Tips

FEBRUARY IS HEART MONTH

Posted: 02.3.2016
Heart disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. As with men, women's most common heart attack symptom is chest pain, tightness or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting, cold sweats, feeling lightheaded, back or jaw pain, and unexplained fatigue or weakness. For some women, symptoms may be present a month or so before their actual heart attack. If you experience symptoms of a heart attack, call 911 immediately!
