It would be wise to check with your physician to consider other causes. ...Read more

There: There are not many symptoms listed here. If she already has a cardiac history with severe chest pain and inability to move; I would recommend (based on limited facts) calling 911.


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. ...Read more
