VITAL SIGNS OF HEART ATTACK WOMEN SHOULD KNOW

 
    1. One study found that 42% of women having a heart attack had shortness of breath.
The difficulty breathing is usually sudden and may come on for no apparent reason and in the absence of exertion.

    2. Pain in the neck, back, jaw, teeth, arms (typically the left) and shoulder blades is a frequent symptom of heart attack in women.
This is called "radiating" pain and is due to the fact that the heart has many fewer nerve endings than, say, the fingertip, where pain will be localized, Dr. Hayes explains.

 3. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office on Women's Health, women are twice as likely as men to experience nausea, vomiting, or indigestion-like symptoms, such as heartburn, while having a heart attack.
This is often because the blood supply to the right coronary artery, which extends to the bottom of the heart, is blocked, Dr. Hayes explains. Unless they're also having chest pain, many women write it off as something they ate when they should be calling 9-1-1, she adds.


4. Many women—about half—experiencing a heart attack report fatigue that comes on suddenly and has no apparent cause.
One study of 515 women who had had a heart attack found that 70.7% reported fatigue more than one month before the event.

5.Other vague, but possibly life-threatening signs of a heart attack are flu-like symptoms that can also include tiredness.
"If you feel like you just cannot do what you can normally do in a given day, you should consider that it's your heart," says Suzanne Steinbaum, DO, director of women and heart disease at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. "This is one of the most common complaints in women."
6.Rosie O'Donnell reported feeling "clammy" when she was experiencing her heart attack and, among women, this isn't unusual.
Be wary if you suddenly break out in a cold sweat, especially if you're sure you're not going through menopause. Fortunately, this may be one symptom that actually gets you to the hospital sooner rather than later.

7.Classic chest pain may not be the hallmark symptom of a heart attack in women, but it certainly happens.
"There are huge overlaps between men's and women's symptoms," Dr. Hayes says. Any acute chest pain or pressure, such as the classic "feeling like you have an elephant standing on your chest" deserves prompt attention.

8.Feeling dizzy or light-headed is another almost unknown symptom of heart attack.
One study found that 39% of women having a heart attack reported feeling this way as the attack progressed. Another study found that women were actually more likely than men not only to feel dizzy, but even to faint.

I am new to building web sites and I was wondering if
having your site title relevant to your content really that vital?
I notice your title, "Blogger: RITA EGWU'S BLOG " does seem to be spot on with what your website is about however,
I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site
branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea?
Any kind of assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when
opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, amazing
blog!
