Sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between gas pain and a heart attack. Gas pains can be severe and are usually caused by excess air in the stomach or esophagus, as well as in the large intestine. Here are links to both Heart Attack Symptoms and Gas Symptoms. I suggest that you consult with your physician to rule out any major issues.
