Hello, I just had some type of nerve/heart attack at age 23. It lasted about 3 minutes. My arms from my fingers to my elbows (both sides) went numb first. My fingers curled up. Nerves in both hands caused my hands to curl. My eyes felt like they were being forced shut by my system, but I could force them open slightly. Then legs basically became useless as I started to lye on the ground.

What are the signs of a heart attack...I am 61 yrs old, have been having severe chest pains, heavyness at chest, pounding so bad that I feel it in my throat, no numbing of the arms, my concern is I am getting these symptoms when sitting or laying down. Today I ate and started with the pain about 45 min later so I am hoping it is heartburn. Other times it just happens suddenly. I am waiting for insurance approval to see a cardiologist.
