Dizziness or Light-Headedness

Feeling dizzy or light-headed is another almost unknown symptom of heart attack.

One study found that 39% of women having a heart attack reported feeling this way as the attack progressed. Another study found that women were actually more likely than men not only to feel dizzy, but even to faint.

This is likely the result of a blockage in one of the blood vessels leading to the heart.
