Am I having a heart attack symptom ?

I have read everything on the internet about heart attacks and now i m sitting here in a panic attack which can also mimic a heart attack , i have had chest pain for a few hours now on and off not that servere that i would even take medication for it feels like i have something sitting on my chest which i often get but i keep getting a sore jaw same on and off , i suffer from very bad indigestion , i had pizza today for lunch and i had reflux within an hour of eating and 8 hours later its still here , i basically feel fine like i do any other day , except my mind is thinking the worst as i tend to always to with every situation. i have bile in the back of my throat really bad, also i have apain in my left shoulder blade that comes and goes as well , is this related to heart burn or a heart attack , can you get jaw pain from indigestion ? i know this is a horrible thing to ask but is there anyone out there that may know the signs of a heart attack first hand ? warmest regards Thank you to all that repsonded i spoke with my doctor and he thinks its all in my head , ( without actually saying it ) he said my symtoms are a classic sign of indigestion , except for the jaw ache , i have to go see him tomorrow morning. He tends to believe that because i am a bad anxiety sufferer that reading all this info on heart attacks has made my symtoms worse. He also did state to put my mind at ease go to the hospital like everyone else suggested. ( pass ) i dont have any chest pain now , but my jaw still aches on and off. i feel totally embarrassed now , you must be thinking this woman is crazy , not crazy just the anxiety gets the better of me at times and tonight it did just that. thanks for your concern all and for the few of you who made horrible comments i hope you never have to deal with bad anxiety in your life at all , its a terrible thing to deal with especially when everyone around you doesnt suffer from it makes you feel like an outcast at times. ty

ok all you have too do is calm down pick up the phone make a doctors apointment for as soon as possible, worrying will only make it worse darling so try and keep calm. It could only be indigestion but its always good to know for sure as you never know unless a doctor says. My uncle has experianced heart attacks and you will never know as it can be very different for different people. But if you get a doctors appointment and he will decide weather you need to go hospital for tests and things, no worrying as you will be carefully looked after and probley fine. If before going doctors find it really hard to breath or feel awful in anyway leave it 5 minutes and if your not feeling much better call you self an ambulance. And remember haveing a panic attack will make you feel worse and probley you will only have indigestion and the panic attack will make it feel more like a heart attack soo safe side go to the doctor darling he/she will know weather to send you too hospital or if its nothing at all too worry about.. I have no idea about heart attacks axcept pain down the right arm witch some people dont suffer with when having an heart attack .. so my advise is to see a doctor you cannot go wronge there.. :] .. may i advise no medicating such as somethin you can buy over the counter incase the worse and it interferes with the medication the doctor may give.. And the comment just after the one under myn.. Shut up because if it is seriouse your just freaking her out you twat. i hope your ok and you probley will be and hopfully will be, IM me if you can.
