10 Possible Heart Symptoms You Should Not Ignore!

DM (Card), FACC, MBBS, MD (Internal Medicine)
Cardiologist,
10 Possible Heart Symptoms You Should Not Ignore!

Heart issues don’t always come with warning bells or obvious signs of physical distress like the typical pain in the chest, breathlessness or palpitations. Some symptoms of heart problems do not even occur in the chest, which makes it difficult to identify the real issue.

Here are some signs of heart distress to look out for:

 

  1. Chest Pain-
    This is the most typical sign of a heart problem. If your artery is obstructed and you are having a heart attack, you may experience feelings of pain or squeezing and crushing sensation in your chest. Each person describes it differently, ranging from the feeling of a heavy object on the chest to burning pain.

    The discomfort may continue for a few minutes and it can occur when you are lying down or when you are active. If it is a moment’s pain and increases with pressure, then it might not be heart-related. But many times the heart problems, especially in women, elderly and diabetics can occur without chest pain.

  2. Upset Stomach-
    One heart-related symptom that is not as common as chest pain is an upset stomach which might manifest as a stomach ache, vomiting or acidity. Since these symptoms are generally associated with the flu or a stomach infection, they get overlooked in connection with a heart ailment.

    However, if you believe that your last meal should not have led to these symptoms then it is important to get medical attention to ensure that you are not potentially suffering from a heart attack. Also, it’s essential to remember that women have greater chances of experiencing an upset stomach in relation to heart disease, as compared to men.

  3. Sudden onset of pain in the arm, neck, jaw or upper back-
    These symptoms are frequently due to a heart attack or angina, especially if they appear suddenly and are accompanied by uneasiness, breathlessness or sweating. In the case of angina, they may disappear totally after a few minutes. Often these are mistakenly attributed to cervical spondylosis, toothache or muscular pains.

  4. Feeling unsteady-
    You can feel dizzy and lightheaded for a lot of reasons. A momentary loss of balance can be brought on by inadequate food or water consumption or sudden or abrupt movement. But, if you are experiencing unsteadiness accompanied by discomfort in the chest and shortness of breath, then there is a strong possibility that you are having a heart attack. In this case, it is important to immediately get medical help.

  5. Pain in the windpipe and mouth area-
    Pain in the throat and mouth area by itself is not a sign of a heart problem. It is usually a symptom of a cold or sinus blockage. However, if you have pain in the chest that travels up to your throat and mouth region then it could be a possible sign of a heart attack. You should get medical help to ascertain the cause.

  6. Lack of energy-
    If your regular activities like taking a walk or doing chores have started to wear you out, then you should contact your doctor immediately. These changes could be important indicators of a bigger health problem. Particularly for women, severe fatigue and weakness stretching on for days can be a symptom of heart problems.

  7. Sweating-
    A sudden onset of a cold sweat without any clear reason could be a possible sign of a heart attack. If this occurs along with other symptoms, get medical help immediately.

  8. Swelling in the lower limbs-
    Your legs, ankles, and feet might get swollen when your heart does not supply blood properly. You could have abnormal blood flow in the veins causing bloating. Additionally, heart problems can also affect the kidney’s function of removing water and sodium leading to bloating.

  9. A consistent cough-
    Usually, a persistent cough does not indicate heart disease, but if you do have existing heart problems then you should be more alert. If you have a cough that is more prominent on lying down and on exertion and is accompanied by breathing difficulty, it could mean that the heart is not functioning properly causing blood to accumulate in the lungs. Make sure to consult with your doctor if you experience this symptom.

  10. Erratic heartbeat-
    It is common for your heart to quicken or skip a beat when you are excited. However, if your heart skips a beat for more than a few seconds or if it happens too frequently and is accompanied by dizzy spells, you should contact your doctor.

    If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, you should get yourself checked. Quick response and medication at the right time can repair the circulation in your heart and save your life.

You need to take medicines for thyroid. This is also a cause of high cholesterol upto a certain level. For cholesterol do this you can do the following-- stop smoking (if you smoke). Smoking lowers your hdl, (good) cholesterol level. Change the way you eat. Low-fat, low-cholesterol eating benefits all your lipid levels. Lose weight if necessary. Maintain healthy lifestyle start exercising. For more details you can consult me. Nuts, such as almonds, pistachios, and walnuts, contain high amounts of unsaturated fat or good fats, which increase high-density lipoprotein (hdl) and lower low-density lipoprotein (ldl).

You have to talk to your doctor who is treating you. The doctor can examine your overall health and assess your fitness level. The doctor has to ensure that you do not have any kind of allergy or any major problems which can influence your health drastically.

It seems like gas but you need to rule out involvement if heart. For this you do consult some physician or give me details of your symptoms. If it’s gas then do this 1. Don't overeat 2. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style. This is most important n non negotiable part 7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9. Drink lot of water. 10. Curd is good for u. 11. Everyday preferably sleep on same time for more details you can consult me.

What measures I have to take in order to maintain my hba1c count within the normal range.

Mr. lybrate-user, thanks for the query. It is good to know that hba1c% has come down to 6.2 %. This happens because of present drugs, diet and exercise that may be being done. Same lifestyle needs to be continued. Since there is no mention of weight, height, diet pattern and extent of exercise, it is difficult to comment any thing further. Thanks.
