The Danger Of A Heart Attack
Heart attacks are the first cause of death between women and men. However, women are more likely to die of their first heart attack than men.
Dr. Yvonne Johnson says actually the rates of heart attack for men and women are the same, but in many cases, women don't get early treatment.
She explains it occurs because “most of the time the symptoms are not recognized."
The most common symptom of heart attack is crushing chest pain, that is frequently accompanied by shortness breath and fatigue and profusely sweating. Back pain could be one of the symptoms too.
The specialist recommends when a person feels something different from what he is experiencing daily, he should go to ER.
