I think I had a heart attack when i i was on bike

This happened a few weeks ago and I mentioned it back then... but I was coming home after riding my bike and it winded me pretty good. I got inside and my chest just -hurt-. I thought my heart was going to beat out of my chest. I could barely breathe and my whole jaw hurt, right to my teeth. It lasted for what seemed like forever. I finally just stumbled into the shower and let the water run while I sat on the floor. Once it passed, it felt like I had been hit in the chest with a baseball bat or something. The kicker? I m 19, one month from 20. But now I feel fine... I just don t take that hill anymore on cold nights. Am I looking too into this?

23 years male, 177cm, 66kg. for the last 3 months i have been having chest discomfort, dizzy, palpitations and fast heart rates (90-110 at rest), high blood pressure (24h monitor revealed 133/75mmHg, pulse pressure 58mm Hg, heart rate 86bpm - during sleep 126/63mmHg and heart rate 64bpm, it fluctuates between 50-84bpm), sometimes i have bluish/purpule lips and nails, sometimes i feel like my throat is closing or narrow. ekg was normal, echocardiogram did not reveal anything, and bike-stress test was ok (time 0= 145/85mmHg and 132bpm, reached 171bpm @ 175w in 8:17minutes - after 1st minute it went down to 150bpm, the second minute it went back up to 157, the 3rd minute 143, 4th 134, 5th 133bpm; my bp went up to 175/95mmHg, 3rd minute of rest it went back down to initial 150/85mmHg). i did not fell any pain or problems breathing, just a little lightheaded. i still get palpitations (at rest), my lips turn bluish at the corners, i feel slightlly faint or dizzy. i can run for 15 minutes(5 walk, 5 run, 5 really really fast run) and not have any discomfort (maybe a little dizzy or lightheaded). what can it be ? if i experience chest pain or discomfort, wouldn t exercising while i feel it make it worse ? i tried it twice and the discomfort went away. (still get that blue color on the side of my lips and purpule-ish nails). my dad had a heart attack when he was 45.

49yo female. Recent 12 lead ECG test displayed I had a heart attack. Believe it happened few nights prior, waking me out of sleep. Had warning sign of heartburn sensation but didn t realize it until after the fact. Had an echocardio gram that showed no blockage. Have a stress test scheduled but if echo showed no blockage (taken when body at rest, as it was when I thought I had a heart attack) I really need to do the stress test??... thinking what I thought was a heart attack, may really only be a sleep disorder experience

I ve had anxiety attacks/panic attacks almost my whole life. If anyone has this they know what i m talking about. Last night was the worst attack i ve ever had. I literally felt that i was going to die. I started panicking thinking nothing or nobody can help me. Then i started feeling weak and light headed, i could not breathe, that s when i started panicking more. Then i started feeling like i was paralyzed like every move i made was like sooo exhausting like i ve ran miles. I was totally out of breathe. My heart was beating so fast i thought it was going to come out of my chest . Then i started deep breathing and thinking of the most important things to me my kids my family, i came back too. My chest is sore today but does it sound like a heart attack to you all?
