When you have a heart attack
, your arm can go numb, pains, in your chest that may not be severe, pressure behind the breastbone, sweating, shortness of breath
, and/or weakness or tiredness
. The pain may spread to other body parts and does NOT have to be severe. Sharp, short bursts of pain in the chest are NOT usually signs of an attack. These feelings may or may not come alone. Heartburn
usually feels higher up in your neck and you can feel it in your stomach a little. Take a Tums. If it doesn't go away after that, or it becomes accompanied by another symptom, call your doctor.
