However, keep in mind that you may have a heart attack even without chest pain. This is especially common in women.

2. Purgatory and Insomnia: When there is a disturbance in breathing while sleeping then there are problems like insomnia and sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when a sleeping person wakes up amidst sleep gasping for air; It is associated with hypertension, stroke, arrhythmia and heart failure.These are a sign that there is something wrong with your heart condition.

Due to heart failure, your kidneys do not function well and are unable to remove excess water and sodium from the body, causing inflammation in some parts of the body.

9. Long-lasting cough: If you cough for a long time and it produces pink or red colored mucus then it can be a sign of heart problems. This happens when your heart is unable to reconcile with your body and this causes blood to return to the lungs.

10. Irregular heartbeat: Due to high blood pressure or heart duct blockage, your heart cannot pump blood in normal rhythm and this can lead to irregular heartbeat.That is why irregular heartbeat is seen as a sign of heart problems.
