Absolutely! If it’s not a heart attack, it could be something else!

@MrsFuzzyFace:  yes, he could have had a slight heart attack.  He needs to go to the hospital NOW so they can run tests

This is a situation in which it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Just because you feel better doesn’t mean you may not have some kind of lasting impact from a cardiac event. It never hurts to seek care–I imagine the doctors would rather have a false alarm than a missed opportunity for intervention.

Tell him to go to the hospital and get it checked out. Right now.

My dad had a heart attack 12 years ago and NO ONE knew, including himself. It happened on Thanksgiving Day. They thought he had a pinched nerve, and he went to the hospital to get it checked out and get some painkillers. When he was at the hospital, they asked his pain level and he said a 5… he was comparing it to getting his jaw wired shut when he was a boy. They did blood work, and admitted him right away. He had had a moderate-severe heart attack and was in the hospital for over a week. 

Moral of the story: Heart attack symptoms present differently for everyone and can even go undetected by medical professionals without formal diagnositics. 

Please encourage him to get it checked out.
