People experience a variety of symptoms when having a heart attack. Some describe the pain as being in the middle of their chest and "crushing, squeezing, tight, pressure, or burning". Others say the pain is on the right or left side of the chest. Sometimes the pain is excruciating and sometimes it husrts "just a little". Sometimes it extends to one or both arms, the jaw, or between the shoulder blades. Alot of people get short of breath, nauseous, sweaty. Some people have every single one of these symptoms, some have only one or two. Women are more likely than men to have atypical symptoms, i.e., maybe they're a little nauseous, or their back hurts or their arm feels funny, making it difficult for them to realize it is a cardiac problem and they need to call 911....I hope this answers your question.
