Hello Doctor. Whenever there is a season change or flu in the air, I am the first one to get it! Is there any advice to improve immunity? Umang

Hi Doctors ,
In case of a chest pain, how one can identify whether it's just muscular pain or a heart attack. If it's a HA what should he do immediately, specially if he is alone.
God bless you all for conducting such a wonderful program.
