Michigan City Indiana medical malpractice lawyer discusses symptoms of a heart attack that woman shouldn't ignore.

Physical symptoms come in all shapes, sizes and intensity.  The same symptom can come from a harmless condition that will pass or a catastrophic event that could take somebody's life.  It all depends on the underlying condition that is causing the symptoms. Often, it is impossible for the patient to tell what is going on without the advice of a skilled physician.  As a Michigan City medical malpractice lawyer, I believe you should seek medical attention as soon as possible if you experience the symptoms listed below.   Additionally, make sure you are assertive with your doctor and if you do not get the answers that you need, be consistent.   If you experience any of the symptoms described below, you need 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

research study out of Yale University reported that woman do not typically complain of chest pain when they are having a heart attack.   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. Woman can experience the following symptoms, when having a heart attack:

  • Dizziness or nausea
  • Unexplained anxiety, fatigue or weakness
  • Intermittent discomfort in the chest
  • Pain or pressure in the arms, jaw, neck or upper back
  • Feeling clammy and sweaty
  • Looking pale
  • Stomach pain

Heart attack symptoms in women may be subtler than in men, but that does not exempt doctors from making a timely diagnosis of the problem. Indiana medical malpractice law is complex.  If you have been hurt, or a loved one has been killed, by such a misdiagnosis, call a Michigan City medical malpractice lawyer at (219) 874-4878.
