2. Extreme Exhaustion & Breathing Difficulty:
Are you finding yourself fatigued after completing simple tasks like bringing groceries in from the car or doing laundry? Shortness of breath, feeling winded, and exhaustion can all be signs of heart trouble. If the pumping process of the heart is impaired, this can lead to fluid buildup in the lungs and cause coughing, wheeze, and breathing difficulties. As your heart struggles to pump enough blood to meet the needs of body tissues, it diverts blood to vital organs.
What to do: Seek immediate assistance from a healthcare professional who will refer you to emergency care if needed.
