What’s Causing My Chest Pain?

When chest pain occurs, many people wonder if they’re having a heart attack. A heart attack is only one of many possible causes of chest pain. However, no form of chest pain ignored, and it is important to monitor your symptoms and contact a medical professional for an appointment.

If you are experiencing sudden and severe chest pains out of the blue, call 911 immediately.

Emergency chest pain symptoms:

  • You are over 40 years old and have high-risk factors for heart disease, including family history, smoking, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure
  • There is radiating pain in the shoulders, arms, or jaw
  • You feel weak and are having difficulty standing
  • You have a difficult time breathing
  • There is a tight, squeezing sensation accompanying the pain
  • The pain is getting in the span of 10 to 15 minutes
  • You feel nauseous or have vomited already
  • Cold sweating accompanies the pain
  • You have a numb feeling in the arm or hand

Not all chest pain is an emergency. If your pain gets worse or better when you move a certain way and/or there are no other symptoms, then you are probably not dealing with an emergency

Anxiety attacks can also mimic the symptoms of a heart attack. If you are under the age of 40 and have a diagnosed anxiety disorder, this could be the source of your pain. However, taking chances can be dangerous and if you believe you are having a heart attack then you need to contact 911 immediately.
