Is it likely to have a heart attack with NORMAL chest CT scan, chest ultrasound, numerous EKGs, and cardiac enzymes in the last year. 32/F/NS/ N Hist.
Modify risk factors: normal ekg, echo, cardiac ct cardiac enzymes can be useful to rule out a heart attack. At age 32 however we are still capable of building plaque in our arteries.

The true statement: of greatest concern is "Hate my life!" You are at relatively low risk without significant risks other than being male. Symptoms are unlikely to be cardiac and it sounds like you have been evaluated. Find a counselor to deal with the real problem not the somatized cardiac symptoms. Your heart is broken but it is not diseased. Get help. Counseling does not mean you are crazy. Love your life again. ...Read more

Im have a pricking pain in my chest.. exactly where the heart is.. is this starting of heart attack?
Hard to say: Would need more description of the pain along with other information. Usually heart attack pain is described as feeling like a heavy pressure or like an "elephant sitting on the chest." Would be helpful to know if you had associated symptoms and what your medical history is. Best to discuss with your doctor and not ignore it. It can be due to other things too. ...Read more
My chest tightened up real bad and stayed that way for a few minutes. Did I have a heart attack ? P.S. I was doing drugs:p
I have slight pain in my chest, sometimes it’s on the left and sometimes on the right side, is it symptoms of a heart attack ?
I had a pain in the center of my chest for like 5mins then it went away. Could I have had a heart attack? It isn't there anymore.
Nope: Even under the best (worst) of circumstances, 5 minutes is an inadequate time for irreversible damage to the heart to have set in. I would say that it's remotely possible that you had a transient event called unstable angina, but at 18yrs old, that's absurdly unlikely. It's very likely not your heart, but if it is, it's more likely related to something called vasospasm than coronary issues. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What to do if I have a heart attack but I no I'm not but it feels like my whole chest is being squeezed! help please what do I need to do?
Emergency.: I think your symptoms warrant emergent evaluation. I suggest you call 911 and get care at the nearest emergency room. The chest squeezing does not have to be due to a heart attack, but there is no way to tell whether this is something serious or not without getting evaluated by a doctor.
