Heart Attack?

I've been waking up in the middle of the night with sever pain under and in between my shoulder blades, my chest starts hurting like I'm being sat on and I can barely breathe, my left arm starts hurting and my fingers tingle, my stomach starts to hurt and I get nauseous. What could this be?

Hi CrystalDawn,


Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Heart attack symptoms vary among individuals.  Your symptoms are characteristic of potential heart attack. Please seek medical attention immediately.

  • One cannot overemphasize the importance of seeking prompt medical attention in the presence of symptoms that suggest a heart attack.

When in doubt, get checked out anyway.  Even if you're not sure if something is really wrong, you should call 9-1-1 if you experience heart attack symptoms. 

Please play it safe.  

Be well,
