What are the symptoms before having a heart attack?

please no rude or sarcastic comments, this is serious and don t comment if you know nothing about this or you just want points. My mom has heart problems and today she has experienced heart pain and pain in her back and one of her arms. I have heard this has to do with having a heart attack , if you know anything about this please answer? also she has a headache and feels very lightheaded thank you for the reply, although i cannot drive to the ER since im only fourteen, and i m pretty sure she shouldn t drive. My dad doesn t live with us anymore so that s definitely not a possibility either. I m just so worried, I don t know what to do to help her. She has dealt with heart troubles for a very long time, and now it s finally showing. Also, she s only 39, but she s turning 40 soon.

Yes these are symptoms and should be taken seriously. Since you cannot drive call 911 and get help. They can check her out and decide if she needs to go to hospital or not. If you are concerned call them. Don't wait. They are qualified and can help you and if this isn't serious they will let you know , it is much much better to be safe than sorry later. Good luck to you both, my prayers go with you dear.
