I am 52 and just had the first inkling this week of what a heart attack felt like. Luckily when it happened I was in the clinic of a hospital going to get my daughter's C-pap machine. I was taken down on a gurney to E.R where tests were run and it showed that I did have the beginning stage of a heart attack. I had an angiograph and stayed overnight.
