Symptoms : Symptoms of a heart attack can include: chest pain; chest tightness or squeezing; shortness of breath, increased sweating pain or numbness radiating down the arm (more often left than right) and nausea. Some people dismiss the pain thinking it is indigestion. There can be pain in the top midline of the abdomen, as well as vomiting. Pain may not present in the chest but instead can be felt in the upper back, head, jaw or in the teeth. There may be a generalized feeling of unwellness and fatigue. One fourth of people have heart attacks without chest pain. Stroke symptoms can include a severe and sudden headache. There can also be nausea, vomiting & dizziness. A classic sign is numbness, weakness or inability to move one side of your body. Vision may be haywire with issues like double vision, blurred vision or seeing double. Your words could be slurred or you may have difficulty expressing yourself. Feeling confused is common. There could be loss of balance or lack of coordination. I recommend that you be seen at an emergency room immediately.
