Abstract

Black women younger than 50 years were more likely to report frequent and intense prodromal symptoms, whereas older white women reported the least. Younger, obese, diabetic black women reported the most acute symptoms, whereas older nonobese, nondiabetic white women reported the fewest. Symptom clusters and characteristics of women in these clusters provide valuable diagnostic information. Further research with a control group is needed.
