Not to scare you, but women do not have all the typical symptoms of heart attacks as men. If you are worried that it could be your heart, you should get yourself to the ER ASAP. The only way to rule out heart problems/heart attack is to go to the ER and not on a forum. Any chest pain should be evaluated by a doctor.
