Heart Disease Symptoms

Heart Disease Symptoms are the diseases caused by the narrowing, obstruction or calcification of the vessels (blood, brain, kidney, etc.), which are the blood-borne structures in our bodies (eg heart, brain, kidney, etc.).

Cardiovascular disease symptoms may differ in men and women, for example, men develop chest pain more frequently, while women experience shortness of breath, sudden extreme weakness, and nausea.

The sequence of symptoms of cardiovascular disease are:

  • Chest pain (Angina Pectoris)
  • Shortness of breath 
  • Palpitation
  • Fainting

Symptoms related to the organ that is occluded in a blocked vessel (eg pain in the leg, congestion, numbness and weakness in the leg vein occlusion)

  1. Chest Pain (Angina Pectoris):

Cardiovascular disease is the most important symptom.

Often, exercise, stress, heavy food, cold weather, such as factors felt after the middle of the developing chest, pressure, weight, compression, burning sensation is defined as.

Jaw, neck, both arms, back under the left shoulder blade, upper abdomen, can spread to the wrists. Accompanying cold sweating, nausea, vomiting, and color may be signs of yellowing.

Chest pain can also develop at times of rest. Sometimes heart pain can also be felt as indigestion

  1. Breath Stiffness:

It is usually manifested as rapid breathing during breathing and running, and a sense of breathlessness (air hunger).

As with chest pain complaints, shortness of breath can also come to rest and it can be a sign of serious heart disease. However, some lung diseases (such as asthma, emphysema) can cause similar symptoms and it is difficult to understand whether the real cause is from the heart or from the lung.

In such cases, a heart specialist may have to undergo further investigations (sometimes even working with the lung specialist) to determine the patient’s real problem.

  1. Heart Palpitations:

It is the feeling of a heart that suddenly feels very high (such as 100-300 beats per minute) or too much (30-40 beats per minute), or the feeling of a palpitation in the heart where irregular heart beats occur.

  1. Syncope (Fainting):

Suddenly, the loss of consciousness as a result of standing up is the state of being on the ground and coming back after a short while. It can be a symptom of a very serious heart disease, as well as many other less serious causes.

Important Situations in Cardiovascular Diseases

Cardiovascular disease is manifested in 4 different ways:

Heart Attack: A heart attack occurs as a result of a sudden blockage of the heart. Annual percentage of the population is 0.6.

Among the symptoms of heart attack; the patient has a burning, pressing, and feeling of compression. These complaints may spread towards the jaw and arms.

Accompanying nausea and vomiting accompanied by perspiration is strengthening the diagnosis. Complaints start suddenly. It develops independently from the patient’s location, time and activity.

Complaints take more than 30 minutes. People in this condition should be taken to the nearest heart center or hospital emergency department with an ambulance immediately.

In this case, the most effective intervention can be done in hospitals as there is a danger of life. But even if the risk is large, each heart attack does not result in death.
