Chest Pain Factoid #1

Are there any differences with chest pain in men versus women when trying to find out if it was a heart attack?

The 3 commonly reported symptoms 

for men were:
                                   CHEST PAIN, CHEST DISCOMFORT, CHEST PRESSURE

for women were:
                                    UNUSUAL FATIGUE, SLEEP DISTURBANCE, SHORTNESS OF BREATH

In fact, according to an 2003 NIH Health Study, 43 % women REPORTED HAVING NO CHEST PAIN during any phase of a heart attack.

Want to know more?  Stay tuned for more in the next Factoid coming your way tomorrow night...

Sleep well..Stay informed...Nikki B. signing off.
