In brief: Yes

I think u mean symptoms.
A ht atak occurs wen a partial block starts to hemorrhage and shuts down the artery completely.This -> the onset of severe persistent chest Sx.Some times the hemorrhagic block is partial and then complete and then partial again. If this occurs the Sx may wax & wane, a so called stuttering ht attack.Such waxing and waning Sx must not b ignored. Seek med help ASAP.Gd luck.

In brief: Heart attack

There are many variations of the atypical heart attack.
If the person has risk factors and there are atypical symptoms, it is best to get evaluated by a physician
