The human body can signal a sick heart with pain, uneven pulse, shortness of breath and swelling. This was reported to URA.RU by a cardiologist with 50 years of experience, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Yuri Belenkov.

“Most often, the heart gives signals. The first is pain. It may be different. If we talk about coronary heart disease, angina pectoris, it will be pressure, burning. This condition is given in the left shoulder, in the scapula in the lower jaw on the left, sometimes in the epigastrium in the region of the stomach. This condition occurs clearly with physical activity or emotional stress. And it goes away as soon as the person stops and takes a nitroglycerin pill,” said Yuri Belenkov.

Other cardiovascular diseases can also cause pain, he says. “But it will be different. Heaviness in the left side of the chest, presses all the time. Such pain often occurs with an increase in blood pressure, ”added the cardiologist.

The next symptom of the academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences called heart rhythm disturbance. “This is a sign that you need to see a doctor. We record an ECG during the day with a free behavior of a person. Part of such violations is that irregular interruptions of contraction can be unpleasant, but safe. If ventricular extrasystole is detected, then it is prognostically dangerous. There are more serious disorders like atrial fibrillation. But there are even watches that can record a cardiogram and highlight suspicion on the screen, ”the expert added.

The third signal is shortness of breath. “It intensifies, as a rule, in the prone position, it occurs during exercise. For example, you used to go up to the third floor without any problems, but now I stop twice, because there is not enough breathing. This means that the heart begins to work worse as a pump. Blood accumulates in the lungs, which causes shortness of breath, ”Belenkov explained.

Lastly, the doctor noted swelling. “If one leg swells at the end of the day, then this is most likely a problem with the veins. If there are two, then it is either the heart or the kidneys. The presence of a problem can be checked by traces of socks – this is a sign that this needs to be dealt with, ”said the interlocutor of URA.RU. He stressed that sometimes the body does not warn a person about problems with the cardiovascular system. “The heart may not give any signals, but simply stop. This happens with congenital anomalies, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, ”concluded the cardiologist.
