[Text reads: Heart attacks experienced by women are very different from male symptoms. Not all women experience chest pains: it may be in the neck, shoulder, or the jaw. Nausea, shortness of breath, unusual fatigue, and even upper abdominal discomfort, similar to indigestion. Signal boost. This can save lives.]
Seriously, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to the hospital for heart problems, and the doctors had NO IDEA that women present differently than men.
THIS is what I mean when I say that misogyny is rampant in medicine. When doctors are trained for only MALE problems, they don’t even see serious issues in women. They wrote me off as having eaten something that didn’t agree with me. My heart failed two days later. I was originally hospitalized with a BP of 40/70. Indigestion they said.
