This is a letter by a female ER nurse, explaining her personal heart attack experience, describing the symptoms to watch out for, and the things you need to do when experiencing a heart attack.

Heart Attacks and Women

I wanted to send this letter to my female friends, to tell them that it’s real that women rarely experience the same dramatic signs as men do when having a heart attack. I mean about the well-known warning symptoms like cold sweat, sudden stabbing in the chest, grabbing the chest, and falling on the ground as presented in the movies.

This April 2016, at about 10:30 p.m. I had a totally unexpected heart attack. I rehearsed with my Note-a-Belles for about 2 hours, and then after about 1 ½ hour, with no prior emotional trauma or exertion, I had a heart attack.
