    If your heart is racing then its not a heart attack. When you have a heart attack, your heart slows and stops. Try downloading a heart rate app on your phone.

    hi Michaela. chest pain, especially if radiates to other organs/areas is always frightening. however, to to ensure nothing else untowards is going on, give 111 (NHS non emergency numebr) a ring and they'll take u through a questionaire & reassure u.

    all good wishes

    Fight or flight sydrome.  You are in fear.  It is a scary feeling but it will not hurt you.  These are all symptoms induced by fear.
