Chest Pain

Pain along with a squeezing feeling in the chest and pain in the left arm, or the left side of the neck or jaw, is always a sign of trouble with the heart and needs immediate medical attention.

Patients with diabetes type 1 often do not have any pain when experiencing heart attack. Their symptons are nausea, extreme fatigue and giddiness, but NO PAIN.
Any category 1 diabetic who experiences such symptons should view them as a real emergency and call a medic asap even if you think that the symptons are similar to food poisoning or a touch of influenza. Do not ignore them. YOU COULD BE HAVING A HEART ATTACK.

The typical symptoms of chest pain in women are:
Chest “tightness,” “squeezing,” or “heaviness.”  People describe this feeling as a weight or as a band being tightened around their chest. The pain is usually located on the left side of the chest above the bottom of the ribcage, but it’s often hard to define its exact location.
Shortness of breath.Sweating, nausea, and an anxious feeling
A pain in the left arm, neck and jaw.

I have sudden sharp pain in my chest and then it goes away. It doesn't happen every day and it isn't associated with any other symptom. I plan to tell my doctor at my next visit, but he'll send me to the same old cardiologist who makes me feel like a waste of time.
