Angina Symptoms in Women

Angina symptoms in women can be different from those seen in men. In addition, these symptoms need to be taken seriously, because heart disease is currently the number one killer of women in the United States.
 
Common symptoms of angina in women include:
 
  • Pain or discomfort (often a pressure-like pain) in or around the chest, shoulders, jaw, neck, back, or arms that may feel like a squeezing, pressing sensation (usually lasting two to five minutes)
 
 
  • Nausea
 
  • Fatigue
 
  • Shortness of breath
 
  • Sweating
 
  • Lightheadedness
 
  • Weakness.
     
Some women may have more vague symptoms, such as:
 
  • Unusual tiredness
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Problems breathing
  • Anxiety (feeling uneasy or worried).
