Don't wait too long


time is muscle! That means the longer you wait with chest pain the more heart muscle could die. If you have typical chest pain or pressure radiating to your jaw or neck that does not go away with rest you may be having a heart attack. Nausea, sweating, and crushing chest pain are the common symptoms. 5 minutes of chest pain is plenty to start worrying about.

Chest pressure


If you are an 18 year old female,this decreases risk for a heart attack. However, squeezing chest pressure and belching can be symptoms for a heart attack or for angina. It you were an older man, I would likely recommend that you call 911. Please seek medical care if you your pain is not resolving or right away if you have any trouble breathing.

A combination of significant chest pain & shortness of breath may be a heart attack - call 911.

Time to call 911


A person with "crushing center chest pressure" should see the doctor right away. The wisest thing to do is call 911. The paramedics have oxygen, medications, and can do an EKG. The E.R. doctor can evaluate for a possible heart attack. Even if it is not a heart attack, the E.R. usually can provide diagnosis and treatment.

Chest pain not from


Chest pain possibly from ASHD or blocked coronary arteries. What showed possible old heart attack If this was an EKG this is not that accurate. If it was and echocardiogram or cardiac sonogram that showed prior heart muscle damage that is probable accurate. Cardiac cath should tell you if you have blocked arteries and how significant they are. If borderline blockages are found a wire can be passed

Could I have had a silent heart attack ? A few weeks ago I experienced severe pain in back, chest pressure/pain , lightheaded and dizzy with nausea.

Truly if at all, it would not be "silent" because you had pain. Being 33, it would be on the young side for having a heart attack, but without an exam and at the least an EKG it would impossible to tell you that what you experienced was due to a heart condition. Get checked to be safe, best wishes.

I have GERD. Pain medicines sometimes make my symptoms worse. Today I took two Vicodin and 1 Tab Q, 6 hours apart. I've been having some on and off left side chest pressure/stabbing under my breast. Could it be heart attack or GERD?

Stabbing chest pain should always be evaluated and not assumed to be not cardiac until that source is ruled out. Call your doctor or go to the ER.
