Hi I had an incident this morning that I’m not sure whether or not was a heart attack. To start with I have been very ill recently and am extremely dehydrated and malnourished. I personally have not had issues with my heart but my father had two silent attacks and passed due to heart failure. It started as a dull pain directly where my heart is located at first I didn’t think anything of it but after about 20 minutes it had built to an excruciating pain. I was having difficulty breathing, pain in the center of my back, a rapid heart rate and sweating. The pain would subside and start as an ache again rapidly increasing to excruciating. It did this several times and went on for about five minutes. I tried looking on google but their symptoms are so vague it could have been a common cold. Could somebody enlighten me as to what this could have been

It was a signal to immediately call 111 and get to the A&E. You may not be so lucky next time and end up dead while you're on Google or posting here.
