Variable: Some people can highlight feeling jaw pain and maybe having heart attack, and that is the minority of cases. Majority still will have chest pressure. Still even with jaw pain as the presenting symptom most of them still will have heavy sweating, feeling of sob or pain going to left arm. Now can jaw pain be the only symptom, never say never, yes, it can be.
