Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.

Stay on the lookout for these basic signs of a heart attack:


Chest pain. The classic signal of a heart attack is an uncomfortable feeling of pressure or squeezing in the chest.


Jaw or arm pain. This tends to be more common in women, but don’t ignore it.


Heartburn/upset stomach. Don’t write off stomach problems as just a minor ailment. Nausea and vomiting can occur during a heart attack.


Shortness of breath. Again, this is more common among women, but seek assistance if you’re having trouble breathing.


Dizziness. You may feel lightheaded or on the verge of passing out.


Sweating. Breaking out in a cold sweat is an additional symptom of a heart attack.
