How does a heart attack feel like ?

What are some of the warning signs, any information would be helpful. Usually I am answering questions on cancer but heart disease is the number one killer so if you were feeling like you were having one, what would that feel like?

there is no right answer to that. there are typical signs & symptoms but few ppl are typical. i myself had wat felt like a "skipped" beat and a stabbing type pain in the middle of my chest. this went on for about 2 months i didnt get concerned till a "crushing" pain (felt like someone was sitting on my chest) started waking me at night. i ended up having an 80% occlusion in my right coronary artery (RCA) i had a STENT placed and now that in off the plavix im doin great! more & more younger ppl are showing signes of heart problems if youre concerned see your dr. better safe than sorry
