Default Heart attack from illness?

I have determined that Alma, a major character in my Kepler Bb story, will have a heart attack in chapter 9 when she gets a fast onset of viral TB. I based it off of the real thing but with some major symptom differences.

She won't die from immunocompromization(in other words, her immune system will stay strong) and in fact, she will survive, even in the cardiac phase.

She and the rest of her kind have 2 separate hearts and circulatory systems. Usually, only one of them has problems. Hypertrophy and secondary coronary arteries from the opposite aorta are usually enough to stop a heart attack.

I want 2 things from you guys. First, I want to know how to show that Alma has chest pain a few days before the heart attack. Second, I will post a poll on this thread. It has 5 defined types of heart attack and an other category. If you vote for other, don't be afraid to tell me what it is and why.
