Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States? What’s shocking is that one person dies every 36 seconds from heart disease. Hi viewers and welcome back to another Bestie video!
Heart issues do not happen immediately and they don’t always come with warning bells like pain in the chest, breathlessness or palpitations. In fact, some symptoms start way before a heart attack or stroke occurs. This makes it difficult to identify the real issue. Knowing the early warning signs of heart disease can help you before it’s too late. In today’s video, we will tell you early signs you may be at a risk for heart disease.

1. 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.
2. Persistent Cough: A persistent cough doesn’t always mean your heart has a problem, because it’s a common symptom of many things like a cold, the flu, and bronchitis.
3. Random cold sweats: Just because you sweat doesn’t mean you’re going to have a heart attack.
4. Anxiety: People who suffer with heart ailments may experience bouts of anxiety and heart palpitations.
5. Leg Pain: General achiness or a cramping sensation in your legs can be a sign of peripheral artery disease or PAD.
6. Swollen Ankles: Swollen ankles or feet can be a symptom of heart failure. Of course, many other conditions including pregnancy can cause swelling of the lower extremities, so don’t panic.
7. Unexplained Fatigue: It’s normal to feel tired after a day of hard work. It’s not normal to feel completely wiped out after getting dressed.
9. You get dizzy or light-headed: Again, this is one of those symptoms that can have many non-heart related causes.
10. You’re depressed: Depression is one of the most common problems in the world, and it affects 19 million Americans each year.
11. Chest discomfort: Also known as angina, chest discomfort is one of the more obvious signs of an unhealthy heart.
12. High cholesterol: Cholesterol is a fatty substance found in a number of foods, and is also made by your liver.
13. Lack of stamina: We associate exercise with a healthy heart. But remember, a sedentary lifestyle is a risk factor for heart disease.
