doctor drawing heartDo you suffer from heart disease? Many Americans do not realize they have heart disease because the signs and symptoms of the condition tend to be hard to spot. Yet, your heart needs your attention. If you have health insurance, your policy generally will provide for a number of heart screenings over time. The most important one is a regular checkup by your primary care doctor. He or she is the first step in protecting your heart health.

What Symptoms to Look For

It can be difficult to notice the symptoms of heart disease. If you or someone you know is showing any of these symptoms, it is best to see a doctor right away or to head into the emergency room if the situation seems to be life threatening. Do not put off getting screenings and appointments because heart-related ailments can worsen quickly. Look for these symptoms:

  • You suffer from shortness of breath. If you cannot walk from one place to the next without becoming winded, chances are good you are suffering from a heart-related event.

  • If you have any angina or pain, tightness or squeezing in your chest, even if it goes away, you could be at risk.

  • For women, the signs of a heart attack can include pain in the jaw, throat, neck, abdomen or even the back.

  • Your heart feels as though it is racing.

  • You do not have the same amount of energy you once did.

  • You cannot or do not participate in physical activities.

  • You break into a cold sweat.

  • You are lightheaded or dizzy, especially when standing up.

In addition to these symptoms, which tend to occur when an event such as a heart attack, heart failure or arrhythmia are occurring, the true signs of this condition are in your numbers. If your cholesterol or blood pressure is high, chances are very good your heart is under a great deal of pressure. This is always a clear sign that you have heart disease and may need additional care.

The good news is that most health insurance plans offer a wide range of screenings and testing that can give you better answers. Work closely with your doctor to ensure your symptoms are taken seriously so you can feel better and avoid long-term limitations.
