Differentiating between a burning sensation in the chest due to heartburn or if it’s a persistent chest pain that needs immediate medical intervention is a dilemma often faced by most of us. Nonetheless, these symptoms need immediate medical attention to rule out any serious concerns.
Know When To Seek Medical Advice For Your Symptoms
Heartburn v.s. Heart Attack
Although severe heartburn and heart attack is difficult to tell apart, if you experience persistent chest pain then you need to seek immediate medical help. Heartburn is discomfort caused by digestive acid moving into the tube that carries food to the stomach. Heart attack on the other hand involves sudden, crushing pain in the pain followed by difficulty in breathing. A cardiac arrest occurs when the heart stops pumping blood around the body. It needs immediate medical intervention, failing which can result in fatality.
