Anginal equivalent: Yes, it is absolutely possible for heart attack victims to have neck or jaw pain as their presenting symptoms. In fact, patients who a diabetic run a risk of having no symptoms at all. While chest pressure or pain is the most common symptom, anginal equivalent such as neck pain, extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting, or shortness of breath may be symptoms as well.
