Signs of a mild heart attack
(A. Johnson)

Knowing and recognising the signs of a heart attack can save a person's life. If the signs are detected soon enough, what could be a serious heart attack can turn into a mild heart attack. The signs of a heart attack can be slightly different for women than for men. The early signs of a heart attack might also be less noticeable for a woman than for a man.

Nausea

Nausea and vomiting is one sign of a possible heart attack.

Sweating

Unusual or excessive sweating is one sign of a possible heart attack.

Pain

Pains in the arm, shoulder, back, and jaw line are all signs of a possible heart attack. A squeezing pain in the centre of the chest is another sign. If the pain in the chest becomes an increasing episode, one should suspect a heart attack.

Breathing

Experiencing a shortening of breath is a sign of a possible heart attack. Another sign is anxiety or a feeling of impending doom.

Women

While women might experience some of the same signs of an impending heart attack as a man, there are other symptoms that are typical for a woman. These include dizziness or lightheadedness, clammy skin, heartburn or stomach pains, and exhaustion.
