In brief: Heart Attack Pain

Pain from a heart attack can vary from severe to not really having pain, like in the case of some diabetics.
Typical pain of a heart attack is pressure to the chest, aching pain to the left arm and/or the jaw. Diabetics don't always have these typical symptoms, and besides that are at increased risk of a heart attack!
