Which is the just the type of validation that many women who suffer crippling pain every month have been waiting for.
And while we’re not making light of the fact that heart attacks are obviously much more serious and life threatening, it is nice to hear for women who’ve suffered crippling pain every month for a lot of their lives.
Not surprisingly, the news has brought comfort to social media users across the world.
‘This is probably why most women don't know when they are having a heart attack, they can just 'handle' the pain....,’ says one user.
Another wrote: ‘My Dr told me it was all in my head. Like I made the pain up!! Vomit, faint, cried in pain for 3 days in bed. Every month!! Horrible!!’
And a third commented: ‘I'm laughing because most of us women could've told you this a long time ago if medical science actually listened to women. That would be too easy right?’
Way too easy!
