Ask the Doctor: Women and Heart Health

half of women (and a third of men) have “atypical” cardiac symptoms — including indigestion, jaw pain, fatigue or shortness of breath — instead of commonly known signs such as chest pain, according to Noel Bairey Merz, M.D., Director, Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute.

Women also are more likely to have a condition called cardiac microvascular disease, and the signs can be subtle, Dr. Bairey Merz explains. But diagnostic tools, such as a cardiac MRI machine, can find blood flow problems — even in small vessels.
