I am Ricky and sometimes I feel pain in my chest. Is there any possibilities of heart attack?
How would I know if I were having a heart attack? I am a patient of blood pressure.

  • honestly, i DONT think it is a heart attack.more than likely you have gas that you dont feelin your stomach. i get it all the time.things to look for if you are indeed having a heart attack-agonizing headache-pain/ numbness in either left OR right arms-nausia-vomiting-blurred vision-irregular heartbeat/ palpitations/ racing heart-shortness of breath.if your not experiancing any of the above its more than likely just gas as i said before.but if you arent convinced by what im telling you thengo to the ER. men are more likely to have a heart attack that a woman.and being your only 23 its very unlikely.Hope this helps you !

  • The signs and symptoms of a heart attack include pain or pressure in the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, radiating pain in shoulders, neck, jaw, or arms, dizziness, sweating, shortness of breath, and irregular heartbeat. You should know that chest pain can be caused by conditions other than a heart disease. However, since hypertension or high blood pressure is one of the risk factors for heart disease, it would probably be a good idea to get yourself examined by a cardiologist.

  • Yes, there are many symptoms of a heart attack such as anxiety, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, dizziness and sweating along with chest pain. I don’t think having chest pain only means that you have chances of heart attack. However, if you have regular chest pain, it would be better to consult a doctor.
