Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi Nida,
Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist. I read your mail with diligence.
On basis of history it seems unlikely that you have had heart attack. However, one can not exclude problems related to heart like Paroxysmal Nocturnal Dysnea or related to airways Obstructive Nocturnal Apnea. You need to be seen by a doctor who would thoroughly examine you and if needed shall do one or more of the tests like ECG, Echocardiography, Chest X-ray, to name some before we can reach a final conclusion. Good Luck.
With best regards.
