Pain in your throat or jaw
This kind of pain, by itself, is most likely caused by a cold, sinus problem, or teeth grinding at night. But a slight pain or pressure in your chest might spread up into your throat or jaw during a heart attack. Call 911.
It’s inconvenient to rush to an ER, and you may worry that you’ll be embarrassed if you turn out to actually have flu or food poisoning. But that’s not a good reason to ignore any of these warning signs, especially in combination. Your friends, family, and the ER team will all be relieved and happy when you turn out to be fine.
