UTMB shares heart attack symptoms in women

We are here celebrating Women’s Heart Month.

So, to all the women out there, listen to your heart.

If you have any of these symptoms, please seek medical attention and see your physician.

If you have sudden onset difficulty breathing, especially if you’re trying to walk,

if you have any chest symptoms — it doesn’t have to be chest pains, it can be chest discomfort, chest uneasiness, chest heaviness,

or it can be heart burn, indigestion, or it can be an unusual feeling of fatigue — just feeling drained out all of the sudden.

These symptoms can indicate a heart attack.

When in doubt, see your doctor.
