Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome on Ask a Doctor service!

I understand your concern and would explain that a heart attack is usually characterised by chest pain, which can spread to the left arm and jaw.

The pain is triggered by physical activity and associated by shortness of breath, palpitations or even cardiac arrhythmia and high blood pressure values.

If you are experiencing such symptoms, I recommend going to the ER for a physical exam, a resting ECG and cardiac enzymes.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need!

Kind regards,

Dr. Ilir Sharka,
