Signs and Symptoms Your Heart May Not be Working Properly - PLEASE READ

610,000 people die every year from different heart-related diseases. Poor lifestyles, no physical exercise, and unhealthy diets are the prime reasons for poor heart health increasing the risk of heart attacks. But besides these, there are other problems that can affect your heart. All of these symptoms mentioned below are indicators of poor heart health. The biggest problem is that people do not know how congestive heart failure where the muscles of the heart are weakened can also occur in several cases that can be regarded as heart disease.

Heart failure is also heart disease that not many people realise

Frequent use of OTC NSAIDs, diabetes, alcohol, high blood pressure, hypertension and viral infections can weaken the heart muscle resulting in inefficient pumping of blood. Heart failure like other heart problems also causes similar symptoms which is why even if you do not face certain heart problems, you should never write off such signs that you may be suffering from heart failure. The point here is that such symptoms common to all types of heart trouble should never be taken lightly. You should never ignore these 15 signs that your heart isn’t functioning properly and get a doctors checkup immediately.

1- Pain spreading throughout your arm

Women may start experiencing pain in both arms whereas men usually feel it in the left arm. Women may also experience elbow pain before a heart attack. The reason for this is due to

the confusion experienced in the brain due to the several nerves of the spinal cord receiving the transmission of pain occurring in the body. This makes the brain think that your arm is paining instead of your heart.

2 -A chronic cough

A chronic cough can be a marked symptom of cardiovascular disease. The mucous in this type of a cough may even be pink in colour as a sign of traces of blood present in it. This is one of the signs of heart failure. Coughing can be a secondary symptom of dyspnea and loss of breath.

3 - Swelling in the ankles, legs, and feet

In heart failure, the muscles are weakened and thus it stops functioning and pumping efficiently. This causes fluid in the blood vessels to leak into other tissues where the legs and feet are most affected due to gravity. The condition is termed peripheral edema, which can even afflict people without heart disease. However, as this is a common warning sign of heart problems never neglect it and see a doctor.

4 - Loss of appetite

There are several people suffering from heart disease who have reported a loss of appetite. This is because of poor metabolism, poor digestion, and lack of oxygen throughout the body and combined problems that cause poor appetite.

5 - Nausea

Fluid retention in organs like liver and intestines create a condition of poor digestion. These can also cause abdominal cramps and pain that make you feel sick or nauseous after a few bites of food. When such things happen, see a doctor immediately. While a stomach infection, abdominal issues or gastric problems cannot be ruled out, it’s always better to be safe.

6 - Extreme anxiety

People suffering heart failure and other heart problems are prone to bouts of extreme anxiety. In fact, one of the signs of an impending heart attack is confusion and a sudden feeling of anxiety not unlike a panic attack. Studies have also proved that those suffering anxiety early in life are at high risk of heart problems. Panic disorders, phobias, and anxiety can also affect your heart causing tachycardia, high blood pressure, and reduced heart rate.

7 - Fainting

Sudden fainting, lightheadedness and loss of consciousness are common signs of heart disease and heart failure. When the heart cannot pump blood efficiently, there is a reduced amount of oxygen transported throughout the body. Moreover, if a clogged artery is impeding blood flow, the same condition can happen where the brain also receives less oxygen. In such conditions, you may also experience shortness of breath and heart palpitations. Call your doctor immediately if you faint even for a short time after breath shortness.

8 - Your skin becomes paler or bluish

Pallor or a pale face or even if your face appears slightly bluish in colour is one of the most common symptoms of heart failure due to the decreased level of red blood cells in the body. It proves that your heart isn’t pumping blood efficiently. Such a condition is also a symptom of shock where your entire body can grow pale. But before you jump to conclusions about your heart, get yourself checked for shock or also in all probability, anemia.

9 - Skin rashes

Studies have shown how eczema and shingles are high-risk indicators of heart disease. People with eczema had a 48% potential for acquiring conditions like high blood pressure and 29% risk of having high cholesterol levels in the blood. Those with frequent cases of shingles possessed a 59% risk of a heart attack than those without the condition.

10 - Shortness of breath

Those suffering heart failure or heart disease frequently experience breathlessness or Dyspnea. This is a strong feeling on not being able to breathe properly. In fact, this can also start occurring in men and women 6 months before a heart attack.

11- Hair loss

Frequent hair loss in men over 50 is a common indicator of heart disease. While it affects mostly men, women may also experience it too. Baldness is usually associated with increased levels of cortisol a hormone in our bodies also called the stress hormone. You should pay particular attention from hair loss from the crown area of your head.

12 - Irregular heartbeat

Frequent arrhythmia is usually associated with panic attacks and anxiety more prevalent among women. Those at risk of heart problems or those actually suffering from heart trouble may experience both arrhythmia and tachycardia which is increases heart rate. Such a condition may last for 1 or 2 minutes only but if it lasts longer making you feel fatigued and faint, call a doctor immediately.

13 - Increased urge to urinate at night

If you find that you are experiencing a constant urge to urinate more frequently at night, this is the initial symptoms of congestive heart failure. If not checked at this stage, your symptoms and condition may worsen.

14 - Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea is usually overlooked by many but it is widely regarded as one of the symptoms of congestive heart failure where your heart isn’t functioning properly. This condition prevents air from entering the body and if allowed to worsen can increase heart problems like atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure, and arrhythmia.

A Special Friend ..

A special friend is hard to find. Hard to lose and impossible to forget. True friends are never apart maybe in distance but not in the heart.

“There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound.”– Diana Cortes

“A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him I may think aloud.

“If it’s very painful for you to criticize your friends — you’re safe in doing it. But if you take the slightest pleasure in it, that’s the time to hold your tongue.”– Alice Duer Miller

“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.”– Unknown

“I trust that everything happens for a reason, even if we are not wise enough to see it.”— Oprah Winfrey

Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.— Walter Anderson

Miracles happen every day, change your perception of what a miracle is and you’ll see them all around you.— Jon Bon Jovi

Monday Hugs for you

“Happy Monday! If you are happy today, share this joy with the Lord, if you are sad, find strength in God, and remember that He is always in your heart.”

Never explain yourself to anyone.

Never explain yourself to anyone. Because the person who likes you doesn't need it and the person who dislikes you won't believe it.

Most of these people are so unhappy with their lives that they concentrate on ruining others.

If you are just being you, you don’t ever have to explain yourself to the people in your life who matter because they know you. ~ Hope Polk

Never explain - your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway. Elbert Hubbard

A Morning Prayer.

Thank you God for the sounds that disturbed my sleep, for many woke today and could hear not.

Thank you for all the things I see around me, as many woke today and could see not.

Thank you for muscles that move and allow me to get up, as many woke today and could not.

I thank you most of all for allowing me and those I love to wake up, as this morning many woke not.

God knows you are tired. God knows it is difficult for you. but you must also know that GOD would never place in a situation that you can not handle. May God listen to all your prayers and bless everyone who is reading this. Amen

Only God is truly great. The rest of us should be content to simply fulfill the duties with which He has blessed us. Mark J Musser, Who Am I?

Temptation will often hit you during times of blessing and spiritual victory. Greg Laurie, What the Devil Doesn't Want You to Know

Every moment, Thank God

Happy moments: Praise God. Difficult moments: Seek God. Quiet moments: Worship God. Unsure moments: Trust God. Every moment: Thank God.

“God is awesome.Keep seeking Him.”― Lailah Gifty Akita

The antidote for covetousness is contentment. The two are in opposition. Whereas the covetous, greedy person worships himself, the contented person worships God. Contentment comes from trusting God. 

Faith is the hand with which we take from God. When we have met all the conditions and taken what God is offering us, we must believe that we have that thing. 

Trust in God alone, and lean not on the needs of human help. Be not surprised when friends fail you; it is a failing world. Never reckon upon immutability in man: inconstancy you may reckon upon without fear of disappointment. 

Worry is blind and cannot discern the future, but Jesus sees the end from the beginning. In every difficulty He has His way prepared to bring relief. 

Faith is a reasoning trust, a trust which reckons thoughtfully and confidently upon the trustworthiness of God. 

When God pushes you to the edge of difficulty

When God pushes you to the edge of difficulty, trust Him. Either He will catch you when you fall or He will teach you to fly.

"The more you believe and trust God, the more limitless your possibilities become for your family, your career - for your life!" 

God does speak to us and we need to develop a listening ear and recognize His voice. We need to trust Him and take action on what we hear. Irene Bryant, Finding Hope in the Midst of Adversity

Pray with love and trust that God always answers prayers. Oliver Powell, Prayer

God knows how to turn things around. He can turn your sorrow into joy – just let him in. Richard Daly, God’s Little Book of Joy

"By reading the Bible we learn more about God. The more we learn of Him the more we love and trust Him." Jason A. Ponzio, Devotional Thoughts for Everyday

"We are not worthy of his love yet because we trust him it is our inheritance." Donna Schmier, God's Last Name Is Not Damn

Draw aside, into the secret place no one but you and God can explore. This is a place from which all questions can be revered. Doubts and struggles are safe to open up and wrestle with, in this place. Tears are welcome. Jenneth Graser, Look Up

Guardian Angel

God, will You place Your guardian angel around my family and friends this week? I ask that no harm comes to them. I ask that you shield them from the evil of the world.

The guardian angels of life sometimes fly so high as to be beyond our sight, but they are always looking down upon us. 

We cannot pass our guardian angel's bounds, resigned or sullen, he will hear our sighs. ~ Saint Augustine

“One thing you can say for guardian angels: they guard. They give warning when danger approaches. ~ Emily Hahn

Our private thoughts are known only to God. The secret thoughts of all of us are not known by angels or demons or one another. Every prayer, however, is heard instantly by our guardian angel. ~ Janice T. Connell

Never too old.

No matter how old you are, you're never too old to need your Mum.

“The debt between a child and her mother could never be repaid, like running a foot race against someone fifteen miles ahead of you. What hope did you have of catching up? It didn't matter how many Mother's Day cards you drew, how many cliches and vows of devotions you put inside them. You could tell her she was your favorite parent, wink like you were co-conspirators, fill her in on every trivial detail of your life. None of it was enough. It had taken me years to figure this out: you would never love your mother as much as she loved you. She had formed memories of you since you were a poppy seed in her belly. You didn't begin making your own memories until three, four, five years old? She'd had a running start. She had known you before you even existed. How could we compete with that? We couldn't. We accepted that our mothers held their love over us, let them parade it around like a flashy trinket, because their love was superior to ours.”― Stephanie Wrobel

“Mom, you were my first friend and after all this years you still have been my true loyal friend. I love you now and forever. Happy Mother’s Day.”

“Mom, you are the only one. Sees all, says little. Sacrifices all, complain a little. Gives all, expects little. Blessed to have a mom like you. I love you.”

“My mother is a woman like no other. she gave me life, nurtured me, taught me, dressed me, fought for me, held me, shouted at me, kissed me, but most importantly she loved me unconditionally. There are not enough words to describe just how importantly she loved me unconditionally. There are not enough words to describe just how important my mother is to me and what a powerful influence she continues to be… Mother, I Love You.”

“I’ll love you forever; I’ll like you for always. As long as I’m living your baby, I’ll be. Love you mom.”

“Dear Mom. You can be my friend, sister, teacher, and counselor. But none of them can be you.”
