Women have different symptoms than men. Chest pain and other chest related symptoms are the regular symptoms in men. Many women get them also.

But many women do not have chest pain. Almost 45% of the women have no chest pain.

The common heart attack symptoms in women include:

• Shortness of breath

If you have the other risk factors like family history, type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high LDL-cholesterol and over weight you must go to your cardiologist immediately.
