Surprising Signs That Indicate Your Heart Is Not Healthy Enough!

Posted By:

Many a times, in the course of our lives, all of us experience disorders that may bring us great discomfort.

As humans, we would be prepared for ailments, as they are a common phenomenon that most of us experience in varying degrees of severity.

As you may know, in some cases the human body has the ability to give us certain signs and warnings that indicate the occurrence of diseases.

However, the above fact does not hold true for all the disorders, as some of the diseases show no signs or symptoms that warn the victim, until it is quite late!

Cancer is one such disease in which the affected person may not realise that he/she has the disease, especially in the initial stages.

Now, we all know that the heart is one of the most vital organs of the body and even a slight malfunction in the heart can lead to fatal consequences.

The health of the heart can deteriorate due to various reasons, so here are a few surprising signs that indicate your heart may not be as healthy as it should be, have a look.


1. Tightness In The Chest

If you are experiencing tightness in the chest quite often, it may not be due to acidity or fatigue, as many people would think, so it is time to get your heart tested!


2. Shortness Of Breath

If you notice major changes in your breathing patterns and if you experience shortness of breath even with light activities, your heart may not be very healthy!


3. Nausea

If you are feeling nauseated most of the time, without actually vomiting, then your body could be showing signs of an unhealthy heart.


4. Profuse Sweating

If your heart is unhealthy and is working extra hard to pump blood, then you might experience profuse sweating and hot flashes often.


5. Dizziness

Again, when the heart is under extreme stress, the blood flow to your brain may be compromised, leading to lightheadedness.


6. Stomach Upset

If you are experiencing severe stomach upset constantly, without an apparent reason, you should get your heart checked by a health care professional.


7. Fatigue

Fatigue may sometimes be mistaken for various other minor conditions; however, extreme fatigue is also a sign of an unhealthy heart that must not be ignored.
