Did I have a heart attack?

Yes I had last night in my sleep pain and pressure in my chest and my back and jaw hurt so bad that it woke me up, I no pain in my arm that I can remember?

When something happens like that you should head right for the ER. Makes no difference if you had any kind of past pain.
