10 signs your heart isn’t working properly.

1. Puffy feet and legs.

Swelling legs and feet when you take out your shoes at the end of the day can be a sign of heart failure

2. Fatigue and breath shortness.

Blood vessels of the unhealthy heart get backed up and spread to other places like the lungs and this causes shortness of breath. When you are short of breath you need to be propped up while lying flat.

3. Lightheadedness and dizziness.

Fainting or feeling dizzy can be a sign that the blood flow to the brain is restricted or a drop in blood pressure causing heart attacks and strokes.

4. Persistent coughing.

Coughing can be a sign of many common diseases not necessarily a heart disease although persistence and a never-ending cough can be a sign of a build-up of fluid in the lungs that causes congestive heart failure.
