During a heart attack, the person will be conscious and breathing while suffering from chest pain or discomfort.
A heart attack can lead to a cardiac arrest, so don’t hesitate to contact 999.
How can you tell the difference between indigestion and a heart attack?
Indigestion, otherwise known as heartburn, causes a burning and uncomfortable sensation in the chest that appears after eating.
Indigestion often leaves a sour taste in the mouth too, while a heart attack doesn’t.
