Recognize a Heart Attack
Any chance I get to talk about the heart attack symptoms in women, I’ll take it! I had four of the five top heart attack symptoms in women and didn’t even know it! If I had known what to look for maybe I could have prevented my heart attack.
So, when WFLA Tampa Florida said they were raising money for the American Heart Association Heart Walk the same week as World Stroke Day (October 29, 2015) . . . I was there. Oh, did I mention that this year’s theme for World Stroke Day is ‘I am Woman’.
Stroke and Heart Attack
The World Stroke Day theme ‘I am Woman’ is because 1 in 3 women are dying from heart attack and stroke. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women – more deadly than ALL forms of cancer combined! We are more at risk. Women are dying more often than men. We are less likely to receive acute care and rehabilitation.
Although I’m all about female power . . . this isn’t an area for us to be #1.
All kidding aside – this is serious business and understanding the heart attack symptoms in women might save your life or the lives of the ones you love.
