  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

    Lately I've been feeling a few pains on the left side of my chest. They're not very profound or anything, but like I always do, I typed that symptom into the search bar and it suggested that I could be experiencing a heart attack. I doubt that I am, honestly, but while I was looking at the symptoms of a heart attack, I realized that heart attacks have some of the same general symptoms for men and women, and yet there are still other signs that go unnoticed by women in particular. So, today, I thought I would share with you all some of the signs of a heart attack that are prominent in women. You know, just so you'd be aware.

    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Typically women's symptoms are more diffuse than mens. Feeling under the weather and just sick is often reported to be the only symptoms the victims experienced in the hours leading up to the heart attack. Unfortunately this makes women's cardiac arrests etc far more difficult to discover and diagnose in an early stage than mens :(

    Pains on the side of your chest could be alot of things. It's always worth having it looked at, anyways.

    Angina is not a lung problem. It is pain from blockages in coronary arteries.

    To the OP: yes - PLEASE get checked out by a cardiologist. As it has been said the symptoms of heart disease are not as clear in women so it frequently goes unnoticed and untreated.



    "For generations, heart disease has been our number one killer, striking women of every age, color and culture," says Hudson in the commercial. "Heart disease claims one woman every minute, killing more women than men, and more women than all cancers combined. I don't know about you but I intend to stay alive. Fight the lady killer."​

    This is a useful video that explains how blood flow to the heart can quickly improve by basically eating whole plant foods, and nothing but whole... plant... foods.


    The problem is people don't want to even think about trying it because their tastebuds have been acclimated to overly salty, fatty, and sweet foods.
