My dad was intoxicated with beer and he sounded delirious Is that a sign of a heart attack ?

My dad has been drinking a lot since he stopped smoking. Today we went to a kick back and as we went home he started to complain that his arm hurts. He seemed as he was in excruciating pain and he said his chest hurt. He was intoxicated with beer and he sounded delirious Is that a sign of a heart attack or can it be something worse ? Maybe he just was too drunk ?

gangadharan is right, some symptoms of a heart attack as so mild you don't even know you are having one. Mine started in my back as back pain but soon moved to my chest. Get your Dad to the hospital, it is still not too late to see if he had a heart attack. They can still tell up to 72 hours with a blood test. I doubt it was because he was drunk. Take him to the ER. Better safe than sorry.
