These are going to be a bit different between women and men.
As my dad mentioned he had pain going down both arms. Generally, it will be in the left arm as well as going up the neck and into the jaw. These signs are pretty much the norm when it comes to men.
With women, they quite often get low back pain. Women can also exhibit some soft signs, which are a little harder to pick up on, but just as important to understand and read because it sometimes goes unrecognized.
Some of these can be stomach pain, flu symptoms and some chest pain that changes with the level of activity. These symptoms are also common in those with diabetes and the older population.
There are a few other signs that usually don’t get talked about much (at least in basic First Aid courses).
Here are a few of the other things that you may see:
- difficulty breathing
- profuse sweating
- pulse that is slower or faster than normal
- pale bluish skin around the face
- nausea and vomiting
While you won’t see this every time, they are all signs that can help you make a decision as to what is happening with someone or how severe their condition is.
