- Painful symptoms throughout the body
As mentioned, it’s not just your chest you need to be mindful of. You may experience pain or discomfort throughout any region of your upper body, including your jaw, neck arms, stomach, or back. More often than not, there is a gradual onset of pain over the course of a few minutes.
More often than not, pain will begin in one’s chest and then begin to radiate out. Of course, everyone is unique and in some cases, individuals complain that they had pain in the arm, which ended up being a heart attack.
