Most heart attacks involve discomfort in the center or left side of the chest and usually associated with shortness of breath.

Heart attacks can start slowly and cause only mild pain or discomfort.Some people don't have symptoms at all.

Having said this i would like to add that the symptoms can be confusing and the only way to confirm for sure that chest pain is from heart attack or gastric cause is by relevant investigations like



Trop-T test

I hope this helps
