Funny thing happened to me last week. I had jaw pain took a Motrin and felt better. Went to a regularly scheduled doctors appointment the next morning. Told her about my pain she checked out my ear to see if it was an earache. Nope looked good so she suggested and ecg. Had that done and BOOM it showed a heart attack but not when it happened. You could have knocked me over with a feather. I did promise that if I started to feel in anyway bad I would go to the emergency room. I then went over to the dentists office to see if it was tooth abscess and nope after x-rays my teeth were just fine but a crown that she had done a couple of months ago needed adjusting. After that was done jaw pain went away. Today I went to the cardiologist and by looking at the ecg results he said yep I have had a heart attack. Next week I go back for an echo and treadmill test to see about the damage done. I must say I feel good. Have no idea when it happened. I just went up 5 flight of stairs the week before with no problem except my knees said ouch and don't do that again to soon but no shortness of breath or any distress. I had a stress test last January and at that time I had not had any issues. No clue when I had it but I did.
So ladies....... pay attention to feeling off and not just not quite right. Female symptoms of a heart attack are not always the elephant on the chest. I did not have the elephant. No clammy skin or shortness of breath at anytime. Jaw pain, shoulder pain or tiredness can be signs of a female heart attack. Get checked out and be safe
