In brief: Pain/short breating

The most common symptoms of a heart attack in women include pain in the chest, neck or arm and shortness of breath.
Many patients do not have such typical presentations. Other common symptoms include sweating and nausea. Irregular heart beat is not a common symptom of a heart attack. Tiredness, weakness or fatigue are common in the general population, but are not usually due to a heart attack.

In brief: Yes

It certainly could be, you sound like you need to be evaluated asap.
If this is all new, you need to call 911 now for an emergent evaluation of your heart.
