And when women do have chest pain, the doctors respond to their complaints that they have nothing serious. When Dr. Harz's mother went to the emergency room of a local hospital about chest pains, she was sent home with several pain pills, which later turned into a heart attack. The next day she ended up in the intensive care unit of the cardiology hospital.
“Women often postpone visiting a doctor when they have chest pains,” says Dr. Norvell. Partly because they learned the myth that women are not susceptible to heart disease; first of all it concerns young women. But also because doctors mislead them, asserting that these phenomena are neurotic in nature. ” One study showed that women are twice as likely as men to have symptoms of cardiac abnormalities associated with mental disorder or other causes unrelated to the work of the heart.
“If it turns out that the pain in the chest of a man has nothing to do with heart disease, it does not occur to anyone to stigmatize him for it,” continues Dr. Norvell. It is considered that it is natural for a man to take care of his heart. ”
