It is not necessarily the heart attack but any kind of chest pain radiating to jaw or left arm should be thoroughly evaluated and Ekg should be done to rule out any heart related problem to be on safe side.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
