Signs and Symptoms of Heart Diseases

Exposure to movies has made many people believe that heart disease will come with a tightness that will make you clutch your heart and then a fall. But be informed that it does not always happen as we see it in movies. Most heart diseases come with unnoticed symptoms. In fact, some of the symptoms of heart disease do not have any heart related or even affect your chest. You might not even know that you have one until you are diagnosed with it. Heart disease is a general term covering any disorder or deformities of the heart. There are some signs you should watch out for to be able to know if you have heart disease. Some of those signs are:


One of the symptoms of heart disease is indigestion. Indigestion is that full, uncomfortable and burning feeling in your stomach that you feel during or after eating. Although indigestion could be as a result of ulcer, gastroesophageal reflux disease, gallbladder disease, overeating, alcoholism, smoking, stomach infections, pancreatitis, thyroid disease, etc., health professionals have found out that it could also be a sign of heart disease. How then do you know if indigestion you are feeling is related to heart disease? Consult your doctor and be precise about where you are feeling the pains and bloating. Your doctor can run a scan or X-ray to be sure if your indigestion is heart-related.[1]
