Seven most common signs of heart attack

A woman suffers a heart attack every 100 seconds in the United States.  Yet according to an American Heart Association survey, one in every three women said they would not call 911 if they thought they were having a heart attack, and few were aware of the most common heart attack symptoms besides chest pain.2

Learn the 7 most common signs of heart attack in men and women.

Chest pain or discomfort

"I felt like there was a thousand-pound weight on my chest…"

Most heart attacks involve uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain in the center or left side of the chest.

Unusual upper body discomfort

"All of a sudden, there was this sharp pain in my neck and jaw…"

Women are more likely to experience sharp pain in the upper body as a symptom of a heart attack.

Shortness of breath

“No matter what I did, I couldn’t catch my breath…”

Unexplained shortness of breath is one of the leading signs of a heart attack.

Breaking out in a cold sweat

"I kept breaking into cold sweats, and I knew it wasn't menopause..."


Cold sweats or unexplained and excessive sweating can be a sign of a heart attack.

Unusual or unexplained fatigue (tiredness)

"No matter how much I slept, I was still tired and exhausted..."

More than half of women having a heart attack experience unexplained or unusual tiredness or muscle fatigue not related to exercise.

Light-headedness or sudden dizziness

"I felt dizzy and light-headed, like I stood up too fast..."

Unlike in the movies, most heart attacks do not make you pass out right away. Instead, you may suddenly feel dizzy or light-headed.

Nausea (feeling sick to the stomach)

"I couldn't shake this feeling of intense nausea..."

Women are more likely to experience nausea or vomiting as a sign of a heart attack.
