    Your heart is what pumps the blood around your body. A heart attack is caused by narrowing of the arteries due to plaques that build up over years. When the narrowing gets to the point that the heart muscle is not getting enough blood it begins to cause damage. Many, but not all, patients begin to have pain in thier chest, back, left arm or left neck, or some combination of them. Patients who have diabetes may not feel the pain because the nerve endings that send the pain signals to the brain could be damaged by the diabetes. The pain is different for men and women. Many patients often become pale or gray colored, begin sweating, may be short of breath or nauseated. Anyone who thinks they are having a heart attack should take an aspirin and call 911 for treatment right away. Time is muscle and once heart muscle dies it doesnt come back . Email me if you have more specific questions. I will be happy to answer them.
