In brief: Anything else?

If you have shortness of breath or cough, if the pain feels like squeezing pressure or if there is arm or neck pain.
If you are sweaty, lightheaded, dizzy, or nauseated with it, then go for immediate evaluation. If it gets worse or doesn't go away, you should seek attention.
