Heart Attack Signs for Women
Many people, particularly young women, overlook the signs of a heart attack because they simply don’t believe that it’s possible for them to have one at such a young age. However, women have heart attacks as often as men and even young women may be vulnerable to heart problems. Reports indicate that some birth control pills such as Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella have induced heart attacks in some patients. If you are taking any of these oral contraceptives and experience any of the following heart attack signs, seek medical attention immediately.
The most common symptom in people experiencing a heart attack is chest pain or pressure and shortness of breath. You may feel that a large weight has been placed on your chest. You may also experience a number of secondary symptoms, sometimes even in lieu of chest pain or pressure, including:
- Tightness in chest
- Pain in other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, arms, neck, and jaw
- Nausea or vomiting
- Heartburn or indigestion sensation
A heart attack can have major impacts on your future health, work, and activities. You may find yourself unable to participate in certain hobbies or sports that require physical exertion that you may have enjoyed before.
If you have taken or are currently taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella and have had a heart attack, the drug manufacturer may be liable for your health complications. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, physical and emotional therapy, lost wages from time off of work, and pain and suffering.
