Hello, I have a question. In a heart attack, is pain on left side of the chest, and in the left arm or the right?
I just want to echo everything M.N. said above and urge you to have any chest pain evaluated by a doctor. Heart attack symptoms can vary, and they can also vary between men and women, with women's heart attack symptoms often being very different than the "classic" chest pain attacks people often associate with these events.

Heart Attack Symptoms and Warning Signs
What is a Heart Attack?
Heart attacks are not just nicely coming in one arm or the other. As a female
I thought I had maybe pneumonia because it hurt, to breatch and the cough.
It did not come from one arm to the other
When I had the attack, I felt it was a panicattack (that I have never had)
and the need to breath was the one thing I kept myself calm.
It does not do to panic, you need that strength to stay here.
(in my mind I kept repeating breathe, calm yourself, breath)
You can feel like weight is sitting on your chest and you need to egt it
off. You can have pain that feels like your backbone in braarea is hurting.
If you have high bloodpressure that does make a difference
MOST OF ALL YOU NEED TO SEE A CARDIOLOGIST - A.S.A.P.
If for some reason you can not see one then, go straight to ER
and tell the person there checking you in, that you think you are having a
heartattack and they will take it from there.
DO NOT SIT AROUND THE HOUSE, talking yourself out of going.
Trust me, the best way to make sure is get diagnosed and stabilized
