Q: How does heart disease differ between men and women?

A: Women more often than men can present with atypical symptoms of heart disease. Heart disease in some women may present as nausea, vomiting and upper abdominal discomfort rather than the typical symptoms of angina. It is important to pay close attention to symptoms and seek medical care when such symptoms occur.
