Those Heart Attack Symptoms for Women

When those lists of heart attack symptoms in women started coming out many of us were confused and overwhelmed. I know I was. The list was vague and could be attributed to things much less serious than a heart attack. As a woman who over the years had been told not to worry when I asked questions about heart disease this concerned me.

May 18 was my mother’s birthday. When she died of heart disease my concerns turned into a cause. We must not only advocate for ourselves and our own healthcare (do you know how many women do not have access to health care because they are uninsured?) we must start pushing for more research into the causes, symptoms and treatment of heart disease in women as well as the education of physicians.

I recently found a list of “those symptoms” with explanations by physicians who are studying heart disease in women. I found this list very helpful. I hope you will too.

Feel free to reblog this post. Women do indeed have heart attacks. It’s time to spread the word.
