    Hi, miri,
    I am not a Doctor, nor a Professional in this area.
    You really, REALLY, need to see a Doctor, maybe a specialist in Cardiology or something associated with the heart.
    PLEASE see a Doctor, maybe a family Doctor, and if needed, he/she should refer you to a specialist.
    An EKG is usually the first diagnostic testing done, and that would be up to your Doctor.
    Best of luck.

    If you have family don't do this to them... go see a doctor NOW!

    Yes, you must see your doctor. Many heart attacks are called "silent" because they are not as painful as people expect.

    A heart attack is not necessarily excruciatinly painful. Many people have them without really knowing that is what is happening. So this may be a possibility for you. You should see your doctor or a cardiologist for an EKG as well as a serum blood test which is a test that will tell if you actually did have an attack.

    Also, you should always consult your physician before beginning a serious workout regimine.
