Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

No, heart attack won't happen all of a sudden. There will be ECG changes happening which might not be there in your case, so the doctor would have sent you home.

Even though few tingling is there in your body, it is not classical heart attack at all. So, there is nothing to worry about it and listen to your doctor.

If you worry then you might be at the risk for heart attack.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Archana
