Women's Heart Attack Signs When No Chest Pain

WC Douglas M.D.

Plenty of heart attacks come with no chest pain at all -- including 42 percent of all heart attacks in women and nearly a third of men. That means it's up to you to recognize the other warning signs, including a sudden pain or numbness in your jaw, arms, back, or stomach.

Also watch for any of these other signs, especially if they come on suddenly and without any obvious cause:

  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Cold sweat
  • Upper body discomfort
