Signs of Heart Diseases You Should Not Ignore
  • Keystone Heart

How would you determine if something has gone
wrong with your heart?
  • There may be some underlying cause for the
    problem, that needs to be determined as soon as
    possible. If you are 60 or older, health concerns
    like diabetes, high blood pressure, high
    cholesterol usually start coming up. Heart
    surgeries are quite common these days, though
    they carry their own share of complications. One
    such complication is threat to the brain. During
    cardiovascular procedures, the risk of brain
    stroke increases.

Following are the symptoms you should be aware of
  • Chest Discomfort
  • Indigestion may lead to heart attack
  • Left body pain
  • Dizziness
  • Prolonged Cough
  • Swollen Legs

Chest Discomfort
  • Remember if you have a blockage
  • in the artery or are having a heart attack, you
    will feel the pain, tightness, and pressure in
    your chest for a few minutes. Either you are
    resting or doing some physical activity, it may
    happen any time.

Indigestion may lead to heart attack
  • Some people face Nausea, Indigestion, Heartburn,
    or Stomach Pain which indicate a heart attack.
    Women are more likely to report these problems as
    compared to men.

Left body pain
  • This is also one of the common problems which
    people usually face. Pain that spreads to the arm
    and radiates down the left side of the body may
    also be the symptom of heart attacks. Doctors use
    cerebral embolic protection devices TAVR to
    prevent brain complications during heart

  • There are a lot many reasons to make you feel
    dizzy, you may even faint for a moment. I may be
    most likely due to insufficient diet or drink.
    But, if you feel sudden chest discomfort or
    shortness of breath, immediately call a doctor.

Prolonged Cough
  • In most of the cases, cough isnt considered to
    be a sign of heart trouble. But, that doesnt
    mean it cant. If you have a heart disease or
    already know that you are at risk, then you must
    pay special attention to cough. Cough for a long
    time that produces pink or white mucus, could be
    the sign of heart failure.

Swollen Legs
  • Do you have swelling in your legs, feet and
    ankles? This could be another sign of heart
    inability to pump the blood, as it should. This
    results in bloating. Although the classic symptom
    of a heart attack is chest pain and pressure
    gliding to the neck and left arm with shortness
    of breath.
