Heart attacks symptoms are different for women. I recently learned this.
Everyone should know these things.
thanks to mainstream media and being unable to show breasts on TV, way too few people know about female signs of cardiac distress, and impending heart attacks. they only know about the “pain in the left arm” male symptom.
i had all these symptoms once and they sent me right to hospital
it was scary bc i didnt know these were the symptoms for female heart issues
Please, please, PLEASE, reblog this. i don’t know if I did save or called false alarm, with my boss’ life tonight. I felt I was being a bit paranoid, overreacting, but I told Mirage my thoughts and he, after reading over the article I showed him, immediately sprung into action and then shooed her off to the hospital. I don’t know if I did or not, but I knew she’d been super stressed. She’d off-handedly commented on her arm tingling and I asked her if she felt queasy on a hunch. I went to look at the symptoms and we went from there.
VERY IMPORTANT. Women experience many different symptoms of a heart attack, and rarely experience those reported by men.
My grandmother had a heart attack, and what she felt was something like indigestion the night before, and she felt like she had to burp. The next day she felt slightly light-headed, tired, and short of breath. She thought she was coming down with the flu, and went to lie down for a nap. We took her to the doctor 20 minutes later, and they immediately to the nearest emergency room in an ambulance.
THIS WAS A MAJOR HEART ATTACK. She had 80% blockage on one side and 100% on another. PLEASE REBLOG THIS, it’s so important.
