Not all chest discomfort is simply angina. Here are some symptoms that may signify that your angina attack is serious and that you may actually be having a heart attack. If you have any of these angina symptoms, call 911 immediately:
 
  • Pain or discomfort that is very bad, gets worse, and lasts longer than 20 minutes
  • Pain or discomfort along with weakness, feeling sick to your stomach, sweating, or fainting
  • Pain or discomfort that does not go away when you take angina medicine
  • Pain or discomfort that is worse than you have ever had before.
