In brief: Complex
Just because someone has symptoms of a heart attack does not mean they have heart disease.
There are many medical problems that can mimic a heart attack. Only a medical evaluation can determine the exact cause of the symptoms.

In brief: What symptoms?
A person may have pre infarction anginal symptoms which are unique to that person or no symptoms at all.
That is why serial troponins are obtained and patients kept in observation. If serial troponins do not elevate, there was no infarction. The person could have experienced pre infarction angina or equivalent or other diagnosis. Further evaluation warranted if clinically indicated.
