5 Heart Health Symptoms You Shouldn’t Ignore


1. Chest Pain
Pain or pressure in the chest—especially with exertion—could be a sign of coronary disease or even a heart attack.

2. Leg Pains
Pains that start in your legs with walking or other exertion could be a sign of peripheral artery disease (PAD), which often goes hand-in-hand with coronary artery disease.

3. Getting Winded Easily
If you suddenly get winded during normal activity, it could be a sign of heart failure, significant coronary disease or valve disease

4. Syncope
Passing out or getting lightheaded could be a sign of rhythm disturbances, low blood pressure, a narrowing heart valve, or other cardiovascular problems.

5. Heart Palpitations
If your heart starts racing for no reason, get checked out. It could be a sign of an abnormal heart beat, which can be a symptom of heart disease or an arrhythmia.
