A woman generally is a special being who carries on her daughterly, motherly and wifely roles without complaints. This makes women to suppress whatever is going on in their life and by the time they shout out in some cases is too late. According to some researches carried out the population of woman with heart diseases is more that of the men. It is often thought that heart diseases are more for men than in women because they do not know what to look out for. The most common heart attack symptoms in women are the same as in men such as chest pain, pressure or discomfort which last a few minutes. It is also possible to have heart attack without chest pain especially in women. Symptoms might not be noticeable such as shortness of breath, pain in both arms or one, nausea and vomiting, sweating, dizziness to mention but a few.
