Hello, Isabel: I appreciate this information, but I don't understand what is meant at the top, in the first section: It gives several symptoms to watch for, but then it says, "This combination of characteristics that determine whether someone has a heart attack and chest pain intensity is not very important." That seems to be contradictory. Why? GT :-)
