The human body can signal pain, uneven pulse, shortness of breath and edema about a sick heart. 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 can be different. If we talk about coronary heart disease, angina – 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 stomach. This condition occurs clearly during exercise or emotional stress. And it passes as soon as the person stopped and took a nitroglycerin tablet, “said Yuri Belenkov.

According to him, other cardiovascular diseases can also cause pain. “But she will be different. Heaviness in the left side of the chest, pressing all the time. Such pain often occurs when blood pressure rises, “added the cardiologist.

The next sign, the academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences called a heart rhythm disorder. “It’s a sign that you need to see a doctor. We record the ECG during the day with free human behavior. Part of such violations – irregular interruptions of reduction can be unpleasant, but safe. If ventricular arrhythmia is detected, it is prognostically dangerous. There are more serious disorders, such as atrial fibrillation. But there are even watches that can record a cardiogram and reveal suspicion on the screen, ”the expert added.

The third signal is shortness of breath. “It intensifies, usually in the supine position, occurs under load. For example, you used to go up to the third floor without any problems, but now I stop twice because I can’t breathe. So, the heart starts 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, it’s most likely a vein problem. If two, then it is either the heart or the kidneys. The presence of the problem can be checked for traces of socks – this is a sign that this needs to be addressed, “- said the interlocutor 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.
