Signs of heart attacks for women

February 9, 2012 8:36:26 PM PST
Doctors say women often don't realize they're having a heart attack, because their symptoms can be more subtle than a man's.

In women, a slight pressure or discomfort in the chest could be a sign and not necessarily a dramatic stabbing pain as many expect.

Another symptom could be extreme fatigue, sometimes lasting months.

Also look out for shortness of breath, nausea or vomiting.

February is American Heart Month.
