Q: 

I lost my job and insurance and am having weird symptoms.what are the symptoms of a heart attack?

A: heart attacks usually come on quickly not over a course of time. You would have pain in your left arm, feel clammy, cold sweat, increased breathing.

Most ERs have forms you can fill out for free care-anyway they have to take...


Q: 

How can one tell that they're having a heart attack?

A: With all the respect to the responder above me, the nameless cute redhead and booksandcats are right.

Q: 

Are these signs of a heart attack?

A: heartburn, not a heart attack. How frequently do you encounter it? During that time, do you have difficulty breathing, breaking out into cold sweat? If yes, it might be heart attack. Or it might just be a heart burn. If you are still worried, go see a doctor and gets a ECG done. Sounds menstrual related- are you do for your period soon? Gas could also cause this- sort of reflux- in combo gas and menstrual can trigger similar discomfort. Often times with this if you inhale it gives a sharp pain. The burning is something I get too near my cycle once in a while. Better get it checked out. Probably nothing serious, but just give yourself peace of...

Q: 

My mom found out she had a heart attack and didnt even know it. is this common?

A: Yes... I think it is common because I have had two heart attacks and was in the intensive care section of the hospital for a week each time and the second time, I had to go for rehab. in another hospital because of my legs. I had severe leg infections both times, so I think that is why I had the attacks plus I am obese too. What makes me think it is common is because both times, I didn''t pass out. Both times, I didn''t have any chest pain and no heart palpitations, and no pains whatsoever, so both times, I didn''t know I had a heart attack. In fact, the second time, in the ambulance, my pulse was normal and didn''t increase until they got me...
