The same as in a man only women ignore the symptoms more. They can have heartburn but it is really a heart attack, they can have jaw pain, back pain, pain in the shoulder or arm, shortness of breath, sweating all the same as men but women don't think they are having a heart attack so don't seek treatment like men do.
