    sometimes misdiagnosis is due to the lack of syptom a person has not listen to from the body.
    a simple numbness or tingling in the lower jaw can indicate a clogged artery in the heart.
    If it is not persistant or paid attention to, the symptom goes undetected.
    nausea as well is a sign of impending heart attack..along with arm aches..anxiety and unexplained sweating.
    Can appear to be a panic attack…..
