Symptoms of a heart attack include:
Chest pain is a key warning sign of a heart attack. If you have symptoms of a heart attack, call 911 or other emergency services immediately.
Chest pain, however, is not always present. In a recent review of 700 people treated for heart attack, 47% came to the emergency room because they had symptoms other than chest pain, including shortness of breath, dizziness, weakness or fainting, and abdominal pain. Women, older adults, and people with diabetes are less likely to have chest pain during a heart attack and are more likely to have other symptoms.
