I had my first heart attack when I was 47. I went to the ER with bilateral elbow pain. The doctor just sent me home with some pain killers. The pain did go way after a few days but I felt tired all the time. A year later I did have the classic chest pain going into the right arm. During the angioplasty they found out that I had lost my right cornary artery but had collateral arteries. They stented the left cornary artery (2 stents) A year later I had my third attack with elbow pain. A year later came my fourth again with elbow pain. How common is elbow pain during a heart attack. To this day if I over exert myself I get bilateral elbow pain but I just stop and rest and it will pass in about two to three minutes. I do carry nitro with me at all time but almost never use it.
