Are you having a heart attack? Many people call 911 or get driven to the emergency room with chest pain or left sided arm pain. The big question: Am I having a heart attack? Most of them aren’t.
Dr. Berglund’s hope with this video is to help you understand the difference between true emergency heart-related symptoms and other causes of chest pain. Of course, if it’s not clear or you have shortness of breath and/or a “heaviness” or “squeezing” sensation on your chest following exertion or stress, just call 911 and skip the video. Please!
The second question that usually follows after the heart attack answer comes back as “no” is “Then why am I having chest pains or left arm pains or even pain referring up into my jaw.” Dr. Berglund will try and answer those questions as well.
