Wich are the Symptoms of Heart Disease?

There is more than one type of heart disease and there can be many different symptoms, which go along with it. It’s important to learn the symptoms and signs to look for and to get yourself checked out if you feel you are experiencing any of them.

Symptoms of Coronary Heart Disease

  1. The most common symptoms include angina or chest pain. Angina can be described as a discomfort, heaviness, pressure, aching, burning, fullness, sneezing or a painful feeling in your chest. It can also be mistaken for indigestion or heartburn. Some angina pains may be felt in your shoulders, arms, neck, throat, jaw or back.
  2. Shortness of breath.
  3. Palpitations (irregular heartbeats, skipped heartbeats or a “flip-flop” feeling in your chest).
  4. A faster heartbeat.
  5. Weakness of dizziness.
  6. Nausea.
  7. Sweating.

Symptoms of Heart Attack

  1. Discomfort, pressure, heaviness, or pain in the chest, arm or below the breastbone.
  2. Discomfort, which radiates to the back, jaw, throat or arm.
  3. Fullness, indigestion or a choking feeling, which may feel like heartburn.
  4. Sweating, nausea, vomiting or dizziness.
  5. Extreme weakness, anxiety or shortness of breath.
  6. Rapid or irregular heartbeats.

If you are experiencing the above symptoms for 30 minutes or longer, you may be experiencing symptoms of a heart attack. Initial symptoms may start mild and then progress into significant pain. There are also people who have what is referred to as a “silent MI”, which is a heart attack without any symptoms whatsoever. If you think you’re having a heart, don’t delay! Call your local ambulance immediately. Do not attempt to drive yourself to the doctor! Dial an ambulance and take an aspirin. Immediate treatment can result in less heart damage.
