If you were to see a man grabbing his chest and falling to the floor without conscious, you would probably think he is having a heart attack. However, signs of heart attack, the leading worldwide cause of death, are not always that obvious.
This means that there are some other, more “quiet” signs that could alert you of having an unhealthy heart. Some people may just feel unwell, thinking they should stay home and rest a bit, not knowing that they are actually having a heart attack.
Heart is the strongest muscle in our body, and when it fails to work properly, it can trigger some symptoms related to other body parts. Read about seven symptoms of an unhealthy heart so you can react properly and on time.
