Default Having a Heart Attack

A new experience and not one I specially enjoyed. It was combined with pneumonia it could have sent me off to the great Forum in the Sky, but it did not ! Got out of hospital today and will soon be doing battle again in cyberspace

What does it feel like (pain wise) to have a heart attack?

That's a bit of an intrusive question, along the same lines as 'what does a kick in the balls feel like?'

Well, I've had 2 kidney stones in the last 2 years and that is excruciating pain, the kind that makes me want to grab my backside. Not good at describing it but there are different types of pain, like muscle spasms, burning, headaches etc.., so was wondering what a heart attack is like.

I once knew a guy who had a heart attack.

He's dead now.

It varies from person to person. Some people say it feels like an elephant sitting on their chest and others say it's more a backache that radiates to their jaw and arms. Sometimes it feels like indigestion or like when you've got a really bad chest cold and your lungs feel full. (I work in a large teaching hospital's cardiology department)

I read somewhere that if you think you are having a heart attack you are meant to keep coughing (for as long as you can and as deep as you can get) as this 'can' stop the attack and shock you heart into a normal rhythm. Could be bollocks tho.

At first nothing, then slowly a sickening pain creeps in until you want the nearest weapons-bearing person to shoot you.
Things get steadily worse from here, until the pain reaches a crescendo, almost matching the heights of laughter of any nearby males.
Several days later the tenderness and ghost pangs leave your groin area, however the psychological scars remain for years. An unnerving exposed and vulnerable feeling that lingers in the mind, and causes empathetic pain when seeing anyone similarly struck down.
