Heart Disease - Sign & Symptoms

Below are some common signs and symptoms of cardiac diseases.

Breathlessness or shortness of breath is commonly seen in patients with heart disease. Difficulty in breathing on physical exertion may indicate a problem in the heart valves or could be due to inflammation and weakening of the heart muscle.

Chest pain or angina is a classic symptom of heart attack and coronary artery disease. The type and duration of chest pain indicate the underlying heart disease. Pain could be short-term, constant, stabbing, or sharp in nature. It lasts for a few seconds to hours.

  • Swelling in Feet

People with congestive heart failure develop swelling in the feet and ankles due to a reduction in the blood-pumping capacity of the heart. This eventually affects the kidneys which respond by retaining more fluid in the body. The fluid starts to accumulate in the feet and other parts of the body.

  • Cold Sweat
