Signs you may have clogged arteries or heart trouble

Each year in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 735,000 people suffer a heart attack and 610,000 people die of coronary heart disease (CHD). That’s one in four deaths.

Preventing heart disease in patients is a physician’s main goal, but early detection is the next best thing. This can lead to changes in lifestyle and medical therapies that can delay or deny the onset of a heart attack; almost 80% of heart disease is preventable with lifestyle changes.

Signs that you may have clogged arteries include:
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Calf pain when you walk
  • Tight jaw
  • Lower back pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Smoking habit

Signs that you may have heart trouble include:
  • You get easily fatigued doing any physical activity OR you suffer from a shortness of breath
  • Your gums are swollen
  • High blood pressure
  • You have trouble breathing in your sleep
  • Your feet and legs are swollen
  • You have heart palpitations
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Neck or jaw pain
