Learning Wednesday: Panic Attack vs. Heart Attack How to tell the difference


The symptoms of a panic attack and a heart attack can be very similar, making it difficult to tell the difference.
If someone thinks they may be having a heart attack, they should seek emergency medical attention.
Having a heart attack also can cause someone to panic, which may make the situation more confusing.

  2. If in doubt get it checked. One thing that was popular in France was carrying liquid aspirin. That way, if you thought you were having a heart attack you took the aspirin. Apparently the anticoagulant properties stop further damage.
