In brief: The typical symptoms
You here are about such as chest pain, or radiation of pain to the jaw, neck, or arm, shortness of breath, or exertional shortness of breath, or sweats.
Sometimes, people have atypical symptoms, such as discomfort in the abdomen. You might have nausea. Sometimes, it can be fatigue but this is pretty atypical. Keep in mind your risk factors. If you have them, be proactive and be tested... Good luck.

In brief: Atypical
Women's heart disease symptoms are often different than men's who have chest pain with left arm radiation, and shortness of breath.
Post-menopausal women are more at risk for heart disease with the peak age being 55-60. Symptoms for women are varied such as "indigestion", or neck pain. Any chest pain should see a md immediately as heart disease is the #1 killer of women.
