When to get help
You should call 999 for an ambulance immediately if you develop sudden severe chest pain, particularly if:
- the pain feels heavy, pressing or tight
- the pain lasts longer than 15 minutes
- the pain spreads to other parts of your body, such as your arms, back or jaw
- you also have other symptoms, such as breathlessness, nausea, sweating, or coughing up blood
- you are at risk of coronary heart disease – for example, you smoke, are obese, or have high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol
If the discomfort is only minor or has resolved, it may be more appropriate to either see your GP, call NHS 111, or attend a local walk-in centre.
