In the United States, heart disease is the leading cause of death, accounting for nearly one-fourth of all deaths. 1 The phrase "heart disease" encompasses a variety of disorders affecting the heart. Coronary artery disease, also known as Coronary heart disease, Heart Attack, Men and Heart Disease, Women and Heart Disease, Acute Coronary Syndrome, and Angina, is one type of coronary artery disease.Smoking, high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol, diabetes, family history of heart issues, particularly heart attacks and strokes, and obesity are all factors that put people at risk for heart disease.
Early signs of heart disease include the following.
1.Discomfort in the chest
Most heart attacks are characterized by pain in the center or left side of the chest that lasts longer than a few minutes or that fades and reappears. Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain can all be symptoms of the discomfort.
2.Discomfort in the esophagus or jaw
Throat or jaw pain, on its own, is unlikely to be linked to the heart. A muscle condition, a cold, or a sinus condition are the most likely causes.
However, if you have discomfort or pressure in the center of your chest that travels to your throat or jaw, you may be experiencing a heart attack. To ensure that everything is in order, dial 911 and seek medical assistance.
A coronary episode might be detected by being unreasonably worried for no apparent reason. If this occurs in conjunction with any of these other symptoms, go to the nearest medical facility as soon as possible.
A cold sweat that appears out of nowhere could be an indication of a heart attack. If any of these other symptoms occur, dial 911 to get to the nearest hospital as soon as possible. Attempting to drive oneself is not a good idea.
A general feeling of tiredness or exhaustion develops when the heart is unable to pump enough oxygen-rich blood to meet the body's energy needs.
The exchange of carbon dioxide from spent blood for fresh oxygen is made more difficult by fluid in the lungs. When lying down, fluid from behind the lungs might flow up the torso, making breathing more difficult.
7.Irritable bowel syndrome, back or shoulder pain
Indigestion and nausea are common symptoms, but upper abdominal, shoulder, and back discomfort are also common.
When you breathe, you'll hear a high-pitched, scratchy whistling sound.
9.Ankle, foot, and leg swelling
A change in the size or shape of a physical part is referred to as swelling.
This could mean your heart isn't sucking blood as efficiently as it should be.
When the heart is unable to pump blood quickly enough, blood accumulates in the veins, causing swelling.
To avoid cardiovascular disease and improve treatment, it is critical to take preventative measures.
Once plaque development has begun, it is feasible to slow its growth by leading a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise, a well-balanced diet, and the goal of lifelong control of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
