  • sorry if this is unrelated to your issues, but how does a heart attack feel? i suffer from anxiety and panic attacks and I'm scared i won't be able to tell the difference.

  • hi they say everyone is different but personally it was extremely painful just prior i felt quite sick the extreme pain in chest and under my armpit - you will know god forbid it happens but you will know totally different pain
