"ATTENTION: The expression "avoir mal au cœur" does NOT mean you're having a heartache or a heart attack, but that you're feeling sick, like you want to throw up." how do you say "my heart hurts" then?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Avoir mal (à) = To be in pain, to hurt somewhere"

Thanks for the answer!

But it still leaves unanswered how you say that you are having a heart attack!
