7 Weird Signs You Might Have A Heart Problem

6. Fainting

Fainting tends to occur due to a sudden drop in blood pressure levels, and this can take place by a wide variety of elements, including the medications that we are taking, and even sudden changes of posture, for instance, getting out of bed too fast often tends to give us a head-rush.

However, in certain instances, fainting can be an indication of a serious body ailment. It can be explained by valve disorders that prevent a smooth and effective blood flow, an aortic tear or even an excessively fast or excessively slow heartbeat can also cause fainting.

However, if you have experienced fainting only once, it is highly unlikely to be cause for much concern. However, if you are constantly fainting, or if you’ve fainted once along with the onset of other symptoms, you must consult your doctor immediately.

7. Dizziness

Much like most of the symptoms mentioned in this article, dizziness that tends to occur occasionally doesn’t raise much concern. Sometimes, it is common to experience light-headedness due to fatigue, standing up too fast or even dehydration amongst countless other reasons.

However, if the dizziness continues to persist, it becomes a cause for concern and you must immediately rush to consult your doctor. If it is being caused by an ailment in your heart, it could be occurring due to valve issues interfering with your blood pressure levels or even artery blockages.

  1. I have severe pain like an elephant sitting on my neck, and dizziness. I have a severe cervical neck disease, and bad headaches and head pain.

    • Try to have honey +black seeds in the morning time, this will help your body to protect from all the minor and major deceases . This is not joke try it .

    • never iqnore lingering syptoms as a servivor of two major heart events better be safe than sorry i was a lean 180 lb 43 year old construction worker who would have thought a energetic young guy would have witness such a life altering occurence i feel im one of the lucky ones because i got into the er on time please dont be the unlucky get checked out !

  2. Hy, well I don’t know about me but I often feel like I could stretch my neck my back until they make that stretchy sound… It always like I’m not free or my bones are sore… By the way I’m a male of age25 … People think I might I have a problem especially my lower back I have to bent over for to be relieved. ….

  3. I was 37 yrs old and ended up in icu for 70 days I have endocarditis and recently went thru open heart surgery to repair valves and they implanted a angioplasty ring but my odds are maybe 2;more years longer

    • Went through the same thing when I was 20. My diagnosis wasnt good either. But here I am now 37 and in pretty decent shape! Take care of yourself, avoid consuming much sugar, drink plenty of water, eat healthy, ginger roots and honey often. Don’t loose hope buddy.

    • Wow that’s pretty horrible news. I hope you realize that our attitude and being unwilling o give up can beat the odds many times. My very good friend lived 20 yrs longer than she was told when she found out she had some rare weird blood thing going. She was given 6 months to a year. She decided that was too soon and she went to Mexico for two years. When she returned she claimed that her health issues were behind her. Her husband said she just talked herself into healthy living and limited stress. She finally died last year at 78 from a car accident mind you.
      So I hope you live well past that two years
      Prayers for you.

  4. What men need to understand is that erectile dysfunction is often a precursor to heart disease. Doctors will not do their due diligence and simply prescribe ED drugs to cover up the real underlying problem.

    If you’re having problems like this and it’s not due to relationship issues or psychological problems, it’s important to get assessed. Change your lifestyle and eat healthy. Stop smoking and drinking.

    Once you get a heart attack, many of the drugs you’ll be forced to take for the rest of your life often kill libido and/or will cause further ED. It’s not a pretty picture of you used to enjoy sex.

  5. I have numbness in my left leg, and numbness in my penis sometimes.. could this be related, and should i be concern ed?

  6. we penciled in a movie/dinner with a couple 50 miles away. The husband decided to stay home, back ache . When his wife returned home after six hours away…he was dead…massive heart attack.
    RIP Rog…

  11. Mam….i am contineuosly suffer from left arms and cheat pain…n occasionally fainting attack too, I feel too weakness, fatigue, headech.. I don’t what can i do.

  12. I have the most baffeling and complex problem. I have remained active all of my life. I never allowed my condition to remove exercise from my life. But, I have learned to much during my activities. I studied echocardiology and cardiology. I specialized in echocho and special procedures. Now, I have shifted from teacher , tech, aide, advocate to patient.
    I have to self talk myself simply because I know tooo much content regarding the circulartory system and the musculoskeletal system intertwined with the sensorimotor functions. I am aware that women are documented for having sharp neck pains–it can indicate heart challenges. Second, I am aware that tightness in the chest, with a terrible taste in the back of the throoat can be GERD. Third, I am aware that the spinal cord lies posterior to the great vessels. Fourth, I am aware that if there is a problem with the environment, and the body becomes fight or flight –result would be very

  13. Thank you so much for posting the information and it is important to spread the word and save lives. Because I use illicit drugs, my Dr blows me off when I tell him my symptoms and express my fear and the awareness I have with me, ALWAYS have been, drugs or no drugs. I do believe I will be going to hospital sooner then later, OR it’s the morg

  14. This last week ive been woken up from my heart pounding i could feel it in my head on my pillow and a weird headache and next morning my jaw was sore when i ate my cereal.

  15. I’ve been living with Chronic Pain, Chronic Migraines, PTSD, Irregular heart beat and have survived 3 different types of Cancer so almost ALL these signs I have everyday Now What…

  16. We were in the middle of moving and i kept getting this squeezing pain between my shoulder blades in my back, If I stopped it would go away but i kept pushing myself until something told me I needed to go to the ER so i went to one of those sattellite ER s a hospital had. I was a 56 year old female at the time and when thety checked me and my family history they called an ambulance to take me to the hospital, i had 3 blocked arteries two they put stents in. No other symptoms no hard to breath no pressure on my chest no pain down my arm just a pain in my back I attributed to moving or to reflux. I never dreamed it was a heart attack and i may not have went if i didnt have the inner voice saying GO NOW. I think the best thing is to follow your gut even if the symptoms arent A typical, If you dont you may leave your family without a mother or father. I would rather feel stupid then be dead, Tell the Dr what you feel it is,,,chances are you are right. I still suffer from angina and take nitroglycerin, If you smoke stop because it will take your life ….no doubt .
    I think women have so many weird symptoms that we die from heart attacks because we do not listen to that voice. Its important to have blood sugar checked ,,,cholesterol checked , family history checked and to kee[ stresss down. I am a diabetic diagnosed 3 yrS AGO A1C was over 14 because thats as high as the reading goes. Family history with these are big so do not be in denial because you are only slightly over weight that you wont get it …i was 5 lbs over weight , just listen to your body and not a dr who you think is wrong. go to every dr needed to get the right diagnosis, you are never too young for a geart attack or death.

  17. Women or Man: all the symptoms you can read about are worth to check. Me my self have not and under stress I have it. Drive my self to emergency room with a numb left arm, they stell not belive I have it. I did lost 35% of my hart, got demage to al velves and going about my life for last 19 years.

  18. I had three all on the right side of my heart. My doc. And I thought i had pneumonia as i had fluid in my lungs. After 3 months we all figured it out. I never had pain at all just shortness of breath bad. Anyhow i will never be right but i am better than i was. Had a cath done. Those areas scarred over no fixing them.

  19. ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO, I NOTICED, A SLIGHT, BUT NOT SO, PRONOUNCED,UPPER BACK AND NECK, PROBLEM. I’VE HAD NECK PAIN FOR SOME YEARS, BUT THIS WAS DIFFERENT.
    OVER THE YEARS, I LOST THE ABILITY TO HOLD MY HEAD UP! I TRIED, KEEPING MY HEAD UP! FOR FIVE MINUTES, INTERVALS AND REPEAT, EACH DAY FOR A WEEK, NO CHANGE. THE HEAD LOWERED, EVEN MORE, I AM VERY CONCERNED, ABOUT, ALL OF THIS!
    CAN YOU, PLEASE!, TELL ME, WHAT IT IS OR CAN I GET HELP!
