Symptom of a heart stroke

Is an unusual chest pain in the right side a symptom of a heart stroke?
I am under medication "zimvastatin 10mg" due to high levels of cholesterol in my blood. Today I'm having an unusual pain in the right side of the chest. The pain comes on & off. Quite difficult when the pain comes. I did not tell anyone yet. I am in my office. Can anyone please tell me immediately why I have this? It will be of help if any doctor can see this query and answer me. Thanks.

Hi im 19 yrs old a 5 6nd weight 132 lbs. I been having this warm and weak sensation in my left arm for a few months now and i saw today the symptoms of a Blood Clot and it look similar to what i feel.

I been also getting this warm sensation on my left chest close to the heart. I has anxiety and last year i went to the doctor thinking i was having a heart attack. They did a stress test and EKG and everything was fine. Im super scared of having a stroke at my age. One of my friend had one 3 years ago im scared it could happen to me.

my friend is male, 58 yrs. Had a heart attack 3 yrs ago and had a bypass. He had a mild heart attack last month no bypass.Today at his check up his cardio. dr. said that he has an 80% blockage in 4 artries not counting the ones bypassed 3yrs ago.These blockages are in places where there is a 75% chance that an operation would kill him, according to the dr. The dr said that my friend is a walking time bomb, gave him 6-8 months and added that stress, strain, physcial exertion could cause it to happen quicker.I know diet and exercise are very important in keeping a healthy heart.Is there ANYTHING my friend can do except wait?

Hi, My father is 63 years old. 2 days back he suffered a chest pain for a long time when he was walking for quite sometimes. He did some chest examinations and after he was shown a cardiologist he told that apart from a blockage in heart there is a small miocadial infarction.
I don't stay with him and i really don't know what is the his health condition and what is the immediate doable for him.
He is fine now. Some medicines are given. I don't understand was it a heart attack because the doctor haven't told like that.
I stay in Bangalore and is in Kolkata. Pls suggest the immediate doable and places where treatments would be good.
