heart attack symptoms relieved by shoulder massage

early this morning i awoke to symptoms of a heart attack. I am 48 years old and a smoker so this is a possibility. However when my neck and shoulders were rubbed the synmptoms went away. What could this be? Can a heart attack symptoms be relieved this way? Still feeling heavy in the chest but not real heavy or painful more like my chest has been strained

Be aure to still go to the doctor..You could have had a spasm or could actually still be in the throes of possible attack..

It could also be a number of different htings..When my gallbaldder becasme a problem I hurt so bad I tought i was having an attack I even took Bayer asparin as this is highly recommended..Turned out that the pain was the gallbaldder..The second attack was much worse and I ended up being admitted to the hsoptial for 24 hr. antibiotics and then surgeyr..

If you are uncomfortables go to the ER..Safe than sorry.k
