That has to be one of the most ignorant and dangerous things I have ever seen. IF YOU ARE HAVING ANYTHING THAT EVEN REMOTELY MAKES YOU THINK HEART ATTACK CALL 911 AND TAKE THE ASPIRIN. Every second that you waste trying to decide is it or is it not will probable kill you. Except with extensive testing even the best doctors can not tell the difference between heart attack, stroke, indigestion, or.... I was born with WPW, Wolf-Parkinson-White, a short circut in the system that regulates your heart beat, 2011 I had 2 sections of my heart burned, a caridac ablation becuase it refused to beat slower than 214 times a minuet, into a family, both sides, with history of both hear attacks and strokes. Do not hesitate, do not compare symptom lists call 911.
