Health Tip of the Week, Sponsored by Baton Rouge General: 4 heart attack symptoms women may be ignoring

    Not all heart attacks are created equal. While chest pain is the most universal symptom of heart attacks in men and women, women are more likely to experience heart attacks without chest pain. These four warning signs are often chalked up to less life-threatening conditions like acid reflux or normal aging, but should be taken seriously. If you think you may be having a heart attack, call 911 right away.

    – A sore jaw
    – Flu-like symptoms
    – Extreme and unexplained fatigue
    – Arm and back pain
