Sue Palmer woke up with severe nausea. She began vomiting, but
she put it down to food poisoning and she was going to go to
bed. However, her husband insisted to go to the emergency
department. As it turned out, he saved her life.
“If I had gone to bed that morning as
planned, I wouldn’t have woken up,” says the woman.
Sue recalls how she joked and rolled her eyes while sitting in
the emergency room. The idea that she might have a heart attack
seemed ridiculous: she was feeling quite normal! The first
electrocardiogram showed no abnormalities, but the doctors
noticed something that caused them to immediately take the
woman to surgery!
When Sue awoke from the anesthesia, she was told that she had a
massive heart attack. The attack began just at the time when
she arrived at the hospital. Her right coronary artery was
blocked by 10%, and the central one by 70%! If the woman had
not immediately taken into surgery, she would have died.
Women experiencing a heart attack can have weak symptoms or no
symptoms at all!
A heart attack is the leading cause of female mortality.
Moreover, nearly two-thirds of women, who suddenly die from a
heart attack, have no prognostic symptoms. Everyone knows that
a heart attack is pain in the chest or arm, but in most women
these symptoms are not as pronounced or not pronounced at all.
Therefore, it is important to know the other signs of this
Pay attention to all unusual symptom in the area from your chin
to your belly button!
Doctors say that it is important to pay attention to any
unusual symptom in the body from the chin to the navel. It can
even be a pain in the back or jaw, or toothache! Please note
that a heart attack is manifested not only as pain, but as a
discomfort in the chest! Another common symptom is indigestion
or stomach problems. Often heart problems are accompanied by
nausea, dizziness and vomiting. In addition, fatigue, shortness
of breath is one of the major, but just noticeable symptoms of
a heart attack.
Call an ambulance; do not hesitate to tell the doctors that you
suspect you are having a heart attack, especially if you think
that your situation may not be taken seriously. Ask the doctor
to give you an electrocardiogram.
Unfortunately, a heart attack can happen even in healthy
people. You do not have to be a smoker, eat at McDonalds and be
overweight, so listen to the signals your body and be healthy!
