Although chest pain is the most common presentation of ischemic heart disease, there are other rare presenting symptoms such as indigestion, diaphoresis, and rarely only with headache. High degree of clinical suspicion is needed in any patient presenting with headache to have ischemic heart disease as an etiology. Hereby, we report an unusual case of acute coronary syndrome in a young patient under the age of 50 presenting with only headache.
