Some heart attack symptoms – like some heart attacks – may be sudden and intense. But more often a heart attack comes on slowly.

A heart attack event can only be properly diagnosed by a doctor. An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) can discover any abnormalities associated with damaged myocardium (heart muscle).
A heart attack can also affect certain enzyme levels. A blood test can help determine if the presence of these enzymes indicates that you suffered a heart attack.
