Pain. Heart disease is caused when the muscles are not getting enough blood (a condition called ischemia), then the oxygen is inadequate and excessive metabolic cause cramps or spasms. Angina is a feeling of tightness in the chest or squeezing chest feeling, which arises when the heart muscle not getting enough blood. The type and severity of pain or discomfort varies in each person. Some people experience a lack of blood flow could not feel any pain at all (a condition called silent ischemia).
Shortness of breath is a symptom of heart disease commonly found in heart failure. Congested as a result of the influx of fluid into the air cavity in the lungs (pulmonary congestion or pulmonary edema).
Fatigue or exhaustion. If the heart is not pumping effectively, blood flow to the muscles during activity will be reduced, leading to heart disease patients feel weak and tired. Symptoms of heart disease is often mild. To overcome this, people with heart disease usually reduce gradually its activity or thought these symptoms as part of aging.
Palpitations (heart pounding).
DanPingsan dizziness. Decreased blood flow due to rate or abnormal heart rhythm or because of poor pumping ability, can cause dizziness and fainting.
