Cardiologist: Dr. Saleem, Other replied 1 month ago

Heart attack would usually cause typical crushing left sided or central chest pain that often radiates to left arm, jaws or the upper back . It can be accompanied with breathlessness or feeling of impending doom. Its usually aggravated by activity or exertion.

While on the other hand a panic attack can cause chest tightness out of anxiety / apprehension but typical chest pain is rare and there is no correlation with physical activity.

EKG would help pick up a heart attack but no changes are seen in case of a panic attack.

Hope it answered your query.

Let me know if you have any more queries.
