Are heart attack symptoms different for a woman?

Heart attack signs in women are often similar to those in men, including uncomfortable squeezing and pain in the center of the chest; pain shooting up and down one or both arms, back, neck, jaw and/or stomach; shortness of breath; and cold sweats. However, women are more likely to feel symptoms other than chest pain, such as nausea and jaw pain.
