Thanks for query,

Signs and symptoms of heart attack or coronary are,

Severe chest pain in precordial region,radiating on arms,shoulder,back,upper abdomen.

Radiation may not be on all sites but may be on one or two sites.

There is perspiration,restlessness,difficulty in breathing,cold extremities.

Mind well it is not necessary to have all symptoms together.even there may be one symptom and one might have attack.

In Diabetes painless heart attach is known.
Some times there is problem of gastric upset and one has attack so never ignore if one has gas or flatulance or discomfort.

Ok and bye.

My son is an elite middle distance runner who is 15 years old. He has been experiencing sharp pain on the left side of chest below the nipple while doing his workouts and occasionally when relaxing. I am taking him to doctors in next few days but was wondering if this could be heart disease or the benign precordial catch syndrome. He has a lot of allergies and allergy induced asthma occasionally. Pretty good health but does get excema and itches a lot while exercising and sweating. Thanks concerned

Hi, I woke up about an hour ago with a pain in the left part of my chest and it hurt to breathe, I wasn't physically hurt recently. I looked online and Precordial Catch Syndrome seemed like what it was, I'm worried because the pain has not gone away and both my wrists and arms were in pain. I'm 17 and I'm overweight(270-280) Is it possible for me to have a heart attack in my sleep or something? And should I go see a Doctor?
