Approximately one quarter of all myocardial infarctions are silent, without chest pain or other symptoms.
Atrial fibrillation is a rapid, irregularly irregular atrial rhythm. Symptoms include palpitations and sometimes weakness, dyspnea, and presyncope. Atrial thrombi often form, causing a significant risk of embolic stroke. Diagnosis is by ECG. Treatment involves rate control with drugs, prevention of thromboembolism with anticoagulation, and sometimes conversion to sinus rhythm by drugs or cardioversion.
Reentrant supraventricular tachycardias involve reentrant pathways with a component above the bifurcation of the His bundle. Patients have sudden episodes of palpitations that begin and terminate abruptly; some have dyspnea or chest discomfort. Diagnosis is clinical and by ECG. Treatment is with vagotonic maneuvers and, if they are ineffective, with IV adenosine or nondihydropyridine Ca channel blockers for narrow QRS rhythms, procainamide or amiodarone for wide QRS rhythms, or synchronized cardioversion for all cases.

Yes you could of possible had a heart attack and you didn't know it. I knew a lady in her 70's she went too her family Dr. complaining that she was coughing and congestion in her chest. The next day she told her care providers at the personal care home that she use too live at. That the cough syrup that her family Dr. prescribed for her wasn't working. So the Emts from the Ambulance hooked her up too a EKG device and the EKG picked up that she was having a mild heart attack. The answer too your question is yes!!! Do you know your family tree by chance?? Do you know if your Aunts Uncles Nieces Nephews Grand Parents on Mothers side and fathers side and if you have brothers and sisters and Cousins start by asking them if they have heart problems and see if that can answer your answer Good Luck!!

Sure, it happens alot. It happened to my aunt. You may have felt nothing, or you felt only a mild sensation and didn't pay any attention to it.

Yes you can. "Signs of a heart attack include: prolonged, heavy pain or discomfort in the center of the chest, which may radiate to the shoulder, arm, neck, or jaw; sweating; nausea and vomiting; shortness of breath. If you or someone you are with has any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately."

Are you stressed? do you smoke? Does anyone in your family have heart problems? "Risk factors leading to a heart attack include a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, smoking, stress, hypertension, and a family history."

And another thing, I don't mean to scare you but I just think you might find this interesting. Did you know a part of your heart/tissue dies every time you have a heart attack? My CPR teacher told us about this person that was pretty much hanging on to life by a thread because that person has had a heart attack several times? And yeah, he also said women are more prone to having heart attacks without realizing it. I don't remember why because I didn't pay attention. You have to hurry to the hospital if you have any of those symptoms or else oxygen can't get to your heart and after like an hour (not exactly sure, might be way less than that) you heart cells start to die.
