By Nancy Burmeister Special to the Herald Review A heart attack may present as tremendous pain in the chest or severe pressure in the chest. Those\u00a0are very obvious symptoms and calling 911 should be automatic. However, some heart attacks\u00a0are not as easy to diagnose. Among the symptoms that might mean a heart attack are pain in the\u00a0jaw or neck (especially women), stomach ache, headache, pain in the back, shoulders or arms,\u00a0shortness of breath, sweating, exhaustion or a feeling of doom. So, how do you know? The fact\u00a0is you cannot always be certain, but that does not mean you should ignore symptoms. Ask\u00a0yourself if this is a feeling you have not had before. Is it a headache unlike any you have\u00a0experienced? Is your body telling you that something is seriously wrong? Are there several\u00a0symptoms that seem ominous? My husband\u2019s heart attack started as a severe stomach ache, but\u00a0he was certain that it was more than that. Fortunately, he listened to his body and made the right\u00a0choice. When in doubt, call 911. If you are mistaken, you may be embarrassed. If you are correct and do\u00a0not call, you may be dead. Calling 911 means that trained EMTs will come to you and treatment\u00a0can begin before you even reach the hospital. If you are having symptoms of a heart attack,\u00a0please do not attempt to drive yourself to the hospital. A good friend of mine did that and died in\u00a0his car. We hope you learned something new today. Take care of your heart.\u00a0You cannot live without it!
