Heart Disease/Heart Attack...what are the obvious signs??

Can someone tell me what the obvious signs are of a heart problem? If you are having a heart attack, does the chest pain come and go or just get stronger? Where exactly is the chest pain located? More upper or lower on the left side? Thanks for your help. Hope everyone is feeling well.

Cardiac pain can be anywhere between your jaw and your belly button.

Re: Heart Disease/Heart Attack...what are the obvious signs??

A pain in the chest, arm, jaw, etc that lasts for a short while does not mean a pending heart attack. There can be many reasons for this. It is usually stress.
I get this as well.
A pain that is constant in these areas and is very sharp could be bad.
Pain is relative. My friend had a sharp pain in his inner left arm to such a degree that he could not drive his car further and it would not subside. He was having a heart attack. Had to have 4 stents put in.

Slight pains in the chest or jaw or arm may not mean a pending heart attack.
It must be severe. But you MUST check with your Doc. as well.
