What are the main signs of a heart attack in a woman im 47 years old and I have been having some pain in the left side of my neck and upperback

I: I will list some of the symptoms of a mycocardial infarction (heart attack). Chest pain, tightness, squeezing or fullness is the most common presentation. However the pain can also present in the upper back, the upper middle abdomen, jaw, head, teeth or in the arms (left more than right). One could have nausea, vomiting or it could feel like indigestion or heartburn. Feeling short of breath, sweating and just feeling out of sorts can also occur. About a fourth of people have no significant symptoms during a heart attack. You asked specifically about symptoms in women. The following statistics are from a national institute of health study. 43% of women had no chest pain. 58% were short of breath; 55% had marked weakness; 43% experienced fatigue, with cold sweats in 39% & dizziness in 39%. According to the study preceding their heart attacks women experienced the following symptoms: unusual fatigue - 70%; sleep disturbance - 48%; shortness of breath - 42%; indigestion - 39% and anxiety - 35%. I hope this helps. Take care.

Is the come down off of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) similar to the signs of a heart attack?

Is the come down off of Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) similar to the signs of a heart attack?

Sigh...: Ok - let's ignore the fact that the phrasing means I'm almost certainly answering a question about illegal presc. Drug abuse. No, the come-off from amphetamines is usually marked by loss of energy, depression of varying severities (depending on how much you've abused it), sleep disturbances, etc. The heart attack symptoms (chest pain, nausea, flushing, racing heart) usually come with the overdose.

I have sharp shooting pain in my left hand and middle finger does that mean signs of a heart attack? I'm 28 years old and a female.

No: The typical pain from a heart attack is shoulder to arm. The pain you describe is more neurological. Still be safe and check it out. Rare things always happen.

Chest press, shoulder pain, back pain, cheek pain and neck pain for over 1 week. Could this be early warning signs of a heart attack?

Chest press, shoulder pain, back pain, cheek pain and neck pain for over 1 week. Could this be early warning signs of a heart attack?

Not likely: The pain seems to be involving different areas of your body, is it mostly left sided? The duration also, 1 week, is not consistent with angina or chest pain due to cardiac disease. A search for alternate causes for the pain is recommended. Please do talk to your doctor about your symptoms.
