You haven''t described the symptoms which have led you to show up at the ER with presumptive heart attack symptoms, and I would really like to know more about them. In the meantime I can offer one possible explanation for...

Are heart attack symptoms in women different than in men?

A: symptoms of a heart attack in women may be similar to men (mid chest pain), but may more likely be "atypical" (shortness of breath, sweatiness, arm or jaw pain only, etc).

Q: 

I have all kinds of heart attack symptoms and hope it''s not one

A: Hello katgoul9,   Thank you for describing your symptoms with detail; it certainly helps with our discussion.   While it is impossible for me to say for certain the cause of your symptoms, I think your physician who can examine you, knows your history, can order lab tests can best comment on the cause of your symptoms.   That being said, given your symptoms, their lack of relationship to exercise, and your age do seem to indicate that your chest pain is not likely cardiac in nature.   Concerning symptoms for cardiac causes of chest pain included left-sided pain that is described as pressure or tightness.  Also, pain radiating...
