If I think I am on the verge of heart attack, What should I do immediately ?

If i think i am on the verge of heart attack, what to do NOW?
what should i do? due to stress and lack of exercise/proper food/ sleep i feel like i am on the verge of heart attack. I am 27 and also i have TONS of books i need to study next few days, which is why i'm taking lots of caffeine. (falling asleep otherwise). What should i do immediately following a heart pain? Should i head to the gym right away and make it a point to do it daily? Should i go for a walk in fresh air? get back to my books and study for my major exam in a few days? What should i do? i knew people who died of a heart attack as teenagers. How come? I don't have money to see a doctor... I am unemployed. Which is why i am studying, - trying to get a job.

Hi,for the last two days I have been experiencing a little numbness and tingling in my left hand. Also, I think maybe I have a bit of a heart flutter. There is no real pain in my chest just a little discomfort. I have been quite stressed and unable to sleep throughout the night. I am starting to worry as I dont want to have a heart attack or anything of that nature. Is this something I should see a doctor for?

Now, I have those symtoms everyday, I also have high b.p. (last checked 120/170 only last week). Am I having heart attacks? Sorry, numbers wrong way round. Feel it like most days but thougt a heart attack was going to be of hollywood proportions, this leaflet describes what I feel.

Hi! My mother s family has a history of heart disease. My maternal grandfather died of a heart attack in his sixties. My maternal grandmother suffered a stroke and died in her early sixties. My mother is currently in her late 50 s and suffers high blood [pressure from time to time. She is on daily medication for her B.P. A few days ago she got continuiing chest pains and went to the doctor. They told her that her arteries are fine but since she has had hypertension sometimes, this has resulted in the weakening of something (aorta?) How serious is this? is it curable? is it a guarantee that she too will suffer an early heart attack like her parents? Is there a way to beat genetics? Thank you.

when ever I run a push vaccum cleaner or a push mower I get real light headed and end up with a headache and feel very shakey. In a sense I feel like I am walking around very light headed like I can pass out. I use to be extremely overweight but around 162 now but when I was at 280 this would happen during most strenuouis task, it only happens now when I do these two things. I use to get heart skips or flutters alot but rarely now. My father died of heart blockage and my mom has blood pressure issues and has had 2 heart attacks. Could this be related?
