Statistics show that locally in Montgomery County, 2% of deaths in 2010 were related to heart disease. Heart disease was the leading cause of death for men in Montgomery County and the second leading cause of death in women. The symptoms of a heart attack for women can be much different than they are for men. Women often feel hot, exhausted, become pale, then develop pain but not necessarily in their chest. Women often just attribute the symptoms to working too hard. But it is important to not ignore any symptoms when you don’t feel good. Both men and women need to learn about heart disease and how to prevent a serious heart attack.
