Is chest pain always the main symptom of a heart attack?
Chest pain is not always the main symptom of a heart attack. Some people can have changes in the sensation they feel from their heart muscle. this is usually due to disease, such as diabetes. These people will not necessarily feel the pain of a heart attack, and must rely on other symptoms of a heart attack, such as difficulty breathing.
