This is Dr. David

at your age, a heart attack is unlikely

but given your symptoms, you should go to the ER and get an EKG and blood test to rule out a heart attack.

it is better to be safe than sorry.

do you have an ER or urgent care center close to you where you can go right now to see a doctor to get EKG and blood test to rule out a heart attack?
