Health.com: Heart Attack Signs Every Woman Should Know

Chest Pain and Pressure

Classic chest pain may not be the hallmark symptom of a heart attack in women, but it certainly happens.

"There are huge overlaps between men's and women's symptoms," Dr. Hayes says. Any acute chest pain or pressure, such as the classic "feeling like you have an elephant standing on your chest" deserves prompt attention.

"Regardless of what the symptom is, if it's something new and it's not going away, it's better safe than sorry," Dr. Hayes says.
