What are the symptoms of a heart attack?

Chest pain or discomfort is the most common symptom of a heart attack, but some people don’t experience chest pain at all, and others experience only mild chest pain or discomfort. Pain, pressure or heaviness may also be felt in shoulders, arms (particularly the left arm), neck, jaw and back.

Some people feel generally unwell or ‘not quite right’. They may also be nauseous, dizzy, have a ‘cold sweat’ or be short-of-breath.

Heart attacks need urgent medical action, at a hospital if at all possible.

The Heart Foundation warns that the symptoms of heart attack aren’t always ‘what you think’. They suggest that if a person thinks they’re having a heart attack, they should call triple zero (000) - ‘The operator will work out if you need an ambulance. And if it’s a false alarm, well, that’s the best thing that could happen.’
