In brief: No one is the same..
Everyone is different.
In general we tell people to be concerned if they are having chest pressure or feel short of breath, especially with exertion. Back pain can also be a symptom and some people just feel tired or feel nothing at all. Most important is that if you have symptoms that give you a 'sense of doom' you should call your doctor. If the feelings come and don't go away, you call 911.
