In brief: Heart attack

Common symptoms of a heart attack are chest pain, sweating, shortness of breath, fatigue at times jaw pain.
Usually the chest pain starts with exertion and progresses to pain at rest. Some feel heart burn like symptoms and some never have an y symptoms at all. Remember women tend to have atypical symptoms such as back pain, shoulder pain and fatigue.

In brief: Chest pain

Remember a heart attack is an occlusion of a coronary artery and doesn't mean cardiac arrest.
If you develop sudden crushing chest pain not relieved with rest you may be having a heart attack. Seek urgent medical attention. Common symptoms are crushing chest pain, sweating, difficulty breathing, nausea.
