As a woman, you know that many of the physical symptoms you experience may be harmless or catastrophic, depending on what is actually causing the symptom to occur. Often, it is impossible to tell without the advice of a skilled doctor. As a New York medical malpractice attorney, I believe it is important to see your doctor as soon as possible if you experience any of the symptoms described below and to press your doctor into conducting tests and gathering enough information to make an accurate diagnosis. Your actions may just save your life.

Common Heart Attack Symptoms in Women
Many of the heart attack symptoms experienced by women do not appear all that serious at first glance and may be misdiagnosed by a doctor. Specifically, women may experience*:
  • Dizziness or nausea
  • Unexplained anxiety, fatigue or weakness
  • Discomfort in the chest that comes and goes
  • Pain or pressure in the arms, jaw, neck or upper back
  • Feeling clammy and sweaty
  • Looking pale
  • Stomach pain

Of course, women may also exhibit more telltale heart attack symptoms such as severe chest pain, but those cases are usually easier to diagnose.

Contact a New York Medical Malpractice Lawyer After a Heart Attack Misdiagnosis

Female heart attack symptoms may be subtler, but that does not exempt doctors from making proper diagnoses. If you have been hurt, or a loved one has been killed, by such a misdiagnosis, please call a New York heart attack misdiagnosis lawyer at 1-800-PAGAN-911.
