SYMP­TOMS: MEN VS. WOMEN

201 Health - - Healthy Heart -

“Women tend to de­velop heart dis­ease 10 years later than men,” says Dr. Sa­muel Suede, car­di­ol­o­gist at the Heart and Vas­cu­lar In­sti­tute at En­gle­wood Hos­pi­tal and Med­i­cal Cen­ter. “But once they are post-menopausal, the risk is equal.”

Women are apt to ex­pe­ri­ence less typ­i­cal symp­toms, in­clud­ing fa­tigue, nau­sea, pres­sure in the lower chest and dizzi­ness, as op­posed to the clas­si­cal symp­toms of chest pres­sure, short­ness of breath and tight­ness that can ra­di­ate into the jaw.
