I however, at the very first heart attack symptoms, got myself to a hospital. Do the same! My symptoms ended up being due to stress, not heart problems and they basically just let me go after they found that out. When you get there, they'll take you in right away. They'll take your temperature and blood pressure, all that jazz. Then they'll put 10 or so stickers on your chest, legs, and arms and hook wires up to them to take what they'll call an EKG. An EKG is short for Electrocardiogram, which monitors your heart. It comes out on a graph just like you see on TV. They'll run it for a few minutes and then tell you what's going on with your body. If you're a girl they make you take off your bra to put the stickers on and everything, but they will put you with a female nurse and cover you back up after everything is set. All in all, it was a pretty painless experience. Good luck, I will be praying for you! [ sizzlinmandolin's advice column | Ask sizzlinmandolin A Question ]

It could be serious, yet could be nothing to worry about.
I had problems a few years ago with my heart and I got it checked. You should do the same and don't delay. [ thelaura's advice column | Ask thelaura A Question ]

You honestly should have done it when the symptoms started showing. There was a ton of people who told you to get to a doctor.
We don't say this stuff for fun. We actually STRONGLY recommend that you listen to the advice you get when it's about something this serious.
Get to an ER ASAP. [ Imperialistic's advice column | Ask Imperialistic A Question ]
