I went to the hospital about 1 or 2 weeks ago. I had heart attack symptoms but it had nothing to do with my heart. Could you please tell me what it is?

Detailed history . In cases where the symptoms are complex and the diagnosis is not straightforward, many clinicians would say that the most important step is detailed conversation with the patient to elucidate the history. Especially if some work up has already been done, a careful review of the story is the first step. Consider getting a consultation with a cardiologist in the office or here on HealthTap. .

While . While the pain you are experiencing in your chest can be attributed to your asthma attack, it is better to be safe than sorry. Chest pain can also be attributed to cardiac tissue injury and heart attack. If you are experiencing severe chest pain, contact your doctor immediately to discuss your condition. If your chest pain is intolerable and you have concurrent symptoms such as nausea, shortness of breath and sweating, get help, call 911. You may be having a heart attack. Do not drive. You should go to the emergency room. Read more...
See your provider. If you were discharged, you didn't have a heart attack or stroke, but you need to see your provider to work up the chest pain. You might need a stress test, echocardiogram, or even catheterization; you might not need any more testing, if the pain is really just asthma. But there are many causes of chest pain, and you should see your provider to figure out what is going on. Read more...
