If you think you are having a heart attack, do not delay! Dial 911 to get emergency help.
The signs and symptoms of a heart attack may vary from person to person.
The most common symptoms are chest pain or pressure that may range from
mild to severe.
Other symptoms may include:
- Trouble breathing
- Indigestion or a burning sensation in the chest
- Pain in the neck, jaw, arms, or back
Again, these signs can vary by person and are not limited to the "classic" symptoms of chest pain.
