Before you have a heart attack, it is impossible to conceive that you could suffer such a significant medical event and a doctor could miss it. However, a heart attack misdiagnosis is possible, and may be even more likely if you are female.
Heart attacks may be misdiagnosed for a variety of reasons including, but not limited to, when a patient presents without the classic intense chest pain that many of us (and our doctors) associate with heart attacks. Females, especially, may go to their doctors with more vague feelings of discomfort or pain in other parts of their bodies.
