When should I seek immediate help if I have chest pain? – Parkland Medical Center


It’s difficult to know
when you need to come in to seek medical attention. Everybody presents a
little bit differently. Sometimes people have the
classic squeezing chest pain in the middle of the
chest and you’re not confused, you know that it’s
a heart attack. But sometimes it’s jaw pain,
sometimes it’s arm pain, sometimes it’s back
pain, shoulder pain. Unless you know for sure,
you don’t want to miss it. And that happens. I had somebody come in
a couple of weeks ago, who tried to tough
it out, didn’t want to come in unnecessarily. And unfortunately, by
the time he came in, he had had a big heart attack. If you come in early,
then we can fix things. We can open the artery,
we can save heart muscle, we can save lives.
