Symptoms of heart attack are so many. The classical symptoms are crushing or tight pain in the chest. The pain may extend to the arms, the back and the shoulders.
The classical symptoms of heart attack can also extend to the neck or the jaw and it may be intense and severe or it could be so mild that you might mistake it for indigestion.
Women sometimes have heart attack symptoms that are different from the previous ones. The pain mostly begins in the stomach or the jaw or with stabbing pain between the breasts.
The symptoms of heart attack in general may be vaguer in women than in men. Some of the symptoms of heart attack are profuse sweating, a drop in blood pressure, difficulty swallowing, dizziness or faintness, ringing in the ears or more rarely nausea and vomiting.
