4 Surprising Symptoms of Heart Disease  




Nausea, indigestion or stomach pain

It’s not all that uncommon for people to be nauseous during a heart attack. If you know you’re at risk for heart disease and notice digestive issues, talk to your doctor about whether it could be heartburn or something more serious.

Gasping or choking sounds while you sleep could be a sign of sleep apnea —which causes you to stop breathing for brief moments. Lapses in oxygen intake can put extra stress on your heart, increasing your risk for a heart attack 

Extreme exhaustion or unexplained weakness after performing everyday tasks are common symptoms of a heart attack, especially in women.




When your ticker can’t pump fast enough, blood backs up in the veins and causes bloating, typically in the legs, feet and ankles.
