Women’s heart attack symptoms – Lila’s Good Health


– In Lila’s Good Health,
a message to women. Did you know you could be on the verge of a heart attack without any chest pain? – I didn’t have chest pain,
I didn’t have arm pain. I wasn’t nauseated, I was
just definitely winded. – [Lila] Women so often ignore the signs. – That’s true because most often they are caretakers in the house and they are so involved in taking care of their loved ones that
they ignore themselves. – [Lila] Doctor Nishtha Sareen is an Interventional Cardiologist
at St. Joe’s Oakland. – [Nishtha] Heart attack signs can sometimes be subtle and confusing. Women are more likely to
have nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath,
back pain or jaw pain. – [Lila] What do you want women to know? – Take care of yourself. Eat healthy, exercise, see your doctors, keep your appointments,
keep a good relationship with your primary care
physician, with your cardiologist because they can catch very
early signs of heart disease before a heart attack happens. – I was ready to have
a massive heart attack. – If you think you’re
having a heart attack, don’t wait, call 911 immediately. – [Lila] Find a good cardiologist,
