While chest remains to be the most common location of pain during a heart attack, it is not the only one. Many patients are misled and do not seek urgent medical attention because they do not experience the usual chest pain. Instead, they may report a dull sensation of pain in their shoulders and arms, especially the left arm.
Sometimes, the pain from a heart attack is located in the neck and jaw, and sometimes it may feel similar to a stomachache. But how would you distinguish heart attack pain from any other type of pain in your jaw, arm or shoulder? You can’t pinpoint the origin of a heart attack pain. There’s no specific articulation or muscle hurting; it’s a poorly localized pain that usually interferes with your daily activities, and starts or gets worse if you’re exercising or doing any type of physical activity.
