of Heart Disease

Nausea, Indigestion or Stomach Pain

Sleep Apnea
Lapses in oxygen intake, like what happens when you have sleep apnea, can put extra stress on your heart. 

Fatigue
Extreme exhaustion or unexplained weakness are common symptoms of a heart attack, especially in women.

Swollen Feet and Ankles
When your ticker can’t pump fast enough, blood backs up 
in the veins causing bloating.

Heart Attack Risk Factors

As you get older,

your risk of heart attack increases.

Smoking is a major
(and preventable) cause 
of heart attack.

High cholesterol and blood pressure levels
put stress on your cardiovascular system.

Being overweight or obese, even if you don’t have any other risk factors, ups your
chances of heart attack.
