Heart Attack & Stroke Symptoms Stop heart disease before it stops you. We offer multiple non-invasive ways to screen for heart disease.

Knowing the risk factors and symptoms can help save lives. Regularly scheduled appointments with physicians are also important, as they can check blood pressure, cholesterol levels, heart function, and offer advice on how to reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Heart Attack Symptoms

  • Pain that spreads from the shoulders, neck or arms
  • Pressure
  • Uncomfortable “fullness” in the chest
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Shortness of breath
  • Indigestion

Women may have all, none, many, or a few of the typical heart attack symptoms. For women, the most common heart attack symptom is still some type of pain, pressure or discomfort in the chest. But women are more likely than men to also have heart attack symptoms without chest pain, such as:

  • Neck, jaw, shoulder, upper back, or abdominal discomfort
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Abdominal pain or “heartburn”
  • Sweating
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Unusual or unexplained fatigue
  • Stroke Symptoms
  • Sudden numbness or weakness of face, arm or leg – especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness
  • Sudden severe headache

If you experience any of these symptoms, call 911 immediately – the faster you receive treatment, the better your possibilities for a full recovery.
