I think I just had a heart attack

I just woke up, I can t breath well at all, my heart is beating very fast and not like it should. Should I call 911? I JUST CALLED 911 THEY ARE ON THEIR WAY. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR ANSWERS - THEY ARE HERE. Update for Dillon - I am a paramedic at the hospital, he did have a heart attack just now, we believe he had 80 percent blockage from what the signs are. He wanted me to add this before we went. He is not stable, but he is expected to be fine. He wants to say, Thanks for all your help. You guys probably just saved my life.

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
