The risk of having a heart attack appears to be rising among young women according to a new study published recently in the journal Circulation.

The Centers for Disease Controls provides common symptoms related to heart attack in order to better inform people how to look for the signs. 

The five major symptoms of a heart attack are

  • Pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck, or back.
  • Feeling weak, light-headed, or faint.
  • Chest pain or discomfort.
  • Pain or discomfort in arms or shoulder.
  • Shortness of breath.
