Avatar m tn Women have different, more subtle symptoms of heart disease than men. Mild chest discomfort or none at all is possible along with back pain, fatigue and nausea. Because you have the number one risk factor, being a smoker, you need to get checked out. Call a local hospital and ask about your situation, they may have a program for you, but don't wait until it's too late.

Avatar n tn Several large studies have confirmed the link between baldness and heart disease. Compared to men with a full head of hair, men with crown loss have an increased risk of heart disease of about 23 percent. Men with complete loss of hair on the top of their head have an increased risk of 36 percent. The combination of hair loss, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol pushes the risk even higher.

1200240 tn?1289339687 My hubby has heart disease.He went along to the GP yesterday and he is refering him back to the consultant for further investigation as he has been coming over very poorly and his pulse was low.

763858 tn?1234811737 I've had Fibromyalgia for years...can even trace some of it's symptoms back to my teenage years...mostly the leg pain. I had the 'aching' symptoms then, which grew worse over time. In the spring of 2007, I had an attack of MS-type symptoms which literally "rocked my world!" They lingered for about 6 months, then calmed down after a dose of steroids prescribed by my Pain Specialists (for the Fibro). He referred me on to my 3rd neuro...
Avatar f tn I think my husband had a mild heart attack early this morning (4 a.m.?). He had all the symptoms as I looked them up. He refused me to call 911 saying he thought he was ok. By 5:30 he felt well enough to rest, and sleep until 7. At 7 he said his chest was still hurting, but it was not a heart attack. He got dressed and left for work, saying he had a busy day and could not call in sick. I am freaking out b/c everything I read says you need treatment within 24 hours.
Avatar n tn Hello, I was just wondering if you could tell me why men recieve more aggressive treatment,when comes to heart disease, Then women do c/o of the same symptoms. When alot of articles out there say women are more likly to die from a heart attack then men. If this is the case, should'nt the same aggressive measures be taken for women. Also,could you please tell me what variant angina pectoris is,and what can be done about it.
Avatar m tn what is difference between Heart attack and Angina pain
Avatar n tn I had read in a health magazine that signs and symptoms of a pending heart attack can be present for as early as two years prior to the actual event, especially in women. If this is a fact, then women with symptoms of lightheadedness, dizziness, intermittent back, arm pain etc. that are examined, and given stress tests, scans etc. could still be at a greater risk in the future if these test are borderline or false negatives. When should a cardiac cath.
Avatar n tn _ Dear Alice, Your first should be to stop smoking as this is one of the major risk factors for coronary heart disease(i.e. blockages in the heart arteries that lead to heart attack.) There are a myriad of symptoms that man and woman can feel, as well there are people who feel no symptoms at all when having a heart attack. Women do tend to get the more non-specific type pains as compared with men who experience the typical chest pressure/tightness/pain in the general chest area.
Avatar m tn It seems like anxiety is listed with the same symptoms as heart disease what is the difference other than anxiety attacks
469720 tn?1388146349 These treatments may include further investigation into the state of disease in the coronaries, which could lead to heart disease, and carotids, which could lead to stroke, as well as the legs, and treating the significant areas of blockage that are found. Treatment with lifestyle modification and medication may slow the natural advancement of the disease.

Avatar m tn Women rarely have the same dramatic symptoms that men have ... you know, the sudden stabbing pain in the chest, the cold sweat, grabbing the chest & dropping to the floor that we see in movies. Here is the story of one woman's experience with a heart attack. I had a heart attack at about 10:30 PM with NO prior exertion, NO prior emotional trauma that one would suspect might have brought it on.

1161780 tn?1266711844 Information from the Cedars Sinai Women’s Heart Center tells us, “For men, heart disease often manifests as blockage in the large arteries of the heart. One of the major discoveries of the WISE study is that many women with chest pain or other symptoms have microvascular disease, a narrowing of the small arteries and blood vessels of the heart. Blood flow to the heart is restricted by fatty plaque buildup, but the restriction does not show up in traditional diagnostic exams.
Avatar n tn Strong heart palpitations in the middle of the night for about half an hour.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately I am unable to give you specifics for your case. In general, in an excellent heart center, women fair as well as men with these procedures. I would suggest you contact the office of Dr. Smedeira or Dr. Mc Carthy both here at the Cleveland CLinic to obtain additional information and see about a referral. I hope this has been useful. I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to write back. Information provided here is for general purposes only.
Avatar n tn Researchers have long reported that women often lack the tell-tale chest pain that typically predicts serious disease in men. In women fatigue, trouble sleeping and shortness of breath may be symptoms of impending heart trouble that doctors miss. In addition, says Dr. Sopko, radiating chest pain that often accompanies the onset of a heart attack in men appears to occur less often in women, who are more likely to feel pain in the shoulder or arm.
