Have you ever wondered how you could tell if someone you love is having a heart attack? Are the symptoms different for men and women or are they the same? Well, here are some symptoms to look for:
Chest pain – This discomfort or pain can feel like a tight ache, pressure, fullness or squeezing in the center of your chest lasting more than a few minutes. This discomfort may come and go.
Upper body pain – Pain or discomfort may spread beyond your chest to your shoulders, arms, back, neck, teeth or jaw. You may have upper body pain with no chest discomfort.
