How does it feel when there is heart disease? Is a heart attack coming? How do you feel if it is about to happen? Would you even recognize it?
Not all heart disease or heart attack display clear signs and symptoms. Unlike what you see in many TV shows, sometimes these symptoms don’t even start from your chest.
It is true that the risk of heart disease increases when you’re 60 or older, being obese, or have diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.
Here are the leading signs and symptoms of heart disease:
1. Discomfort and tightness on the chest leads to heart disease
This is the most common sign of a heart attack. If you have got a blocked artery or are having a heart attack episode, you feel pain, tightness, or pressure in or around your chest area.
Some people claim that having these symptoms are like an elephant sitting on their chest.
These feeling usually lasts longer than a few minutes. These episodes usually happen when you are resting or when engaging in strenuous activity.
But if it’s just a very short and brief pain, or if it’s just a spot that hurts, then it’s probably not your heart.
Also take note that some of you will not have any signs and symptoms of heart disease, without even pain. This is particularly common among women.
2. Pain that spreads onto the arm
Another classic heart attack feeling is that the pain radiates down to the left side of the body.
From most of our customers’ experience, they claim that these heart attack episodes usually start from the chest, followed by moving outwards. But based on some other medical articles, some patients start to feel it as a pain in an arm, which turns out to become heart disease.
3. Feeling Dizzy or Lightheaded
A lot of things can cause you to lose your balance or feel like fainting. Maybe it’s just that you are adopting unhealthy slimming diets, or maybe it’s just that you have anaemia.
But if you suddenly feel unsteady and may have chest discomfort or shortness of breath, consult a doctor directly.
4. A consistent cough that leads to a heart disease
In our current COVID situation, this should be taken seriously and if a cough does not stop, do take some precaution and protect yourself from it by optimizing your immune system and consult a doctor when necessary.
But if it is long-lasting cough that produces a white or pink mucus, that is a sign of heart failure. This happens when the heart cannot cope with the demands of the body, causing blood to leak back into the lungs.
Ask your doctor to ascertain what’s causing your cough.
5. Irregular Heart Beat
It’s normal to let your heart race once in a while when you are feeling nervous or excited. But if you’re feeling like your heart beating very fast or irregular frequently, it might be the beginning of heart disease.
In most cases, detecting early signs and symptoms of heart attack are easily reversed and prevented. In most cases, these are caused by unhealthy lifestyle habits that can be changed, like reducing the excessive amount of caffeine, managing stress, increasing exercises or having enough sleep.
In the traditional Chinese medical (TCM) context, these signs and symptoms of heart attack can be managed by also effectively optimizing the liver, gall bladder, pericardium and of course, the heart meridian system.
