Symptoms of Heart Attack 

The characteristic chest pain of a heart attack is persistent, in the centre of the chest and severe, and often described as squeezing, pressing or tight. It is often accompanied by sweating, faintness, nausea or vomiting and shortness of breath.

The pain may start in your chest or one or both arms, more commonly the left, and into the neck, back and abdomen.

If any severe chest pain lasts for more than 15 minutes without easing, it should be assumed to be a heart attack and you should seek help immediately.

Call an ambulance: dial 111 immediately.
