Heart disease describes a range of conditions that affect your heart. Heart diseases include:

  • Blood vessel disease
  • Heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias)
  • Heart defects you’re born with
  • Heart valve disease
  • The disease of the heart muscle
  • Heart infection

Symptoms

Signs and symptoms can include: –

  • Chest pain, chest tightness, chest pressure and chest discomfort (angina)
  • Shortness of breath
  • Pain, numbness, weakness or coldness in your legs or arms if the blood vessels in those parts of your body are narrowed
  • Pain in the neck, jaw, throat, upper abdomen or back
  • You might not be diagnosed with coronary artery disease until you have a heart attack, angina, stroke or heart failure. It’s important to watch for cardiovascular symptoms and discuss concerns with your doctor.
  • Cardiovascular disease can sometimes be found early with regular evaluations.

When to see a doctor

Seek emergency medical care if you have these heart disease signs and symptoms:

  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fainting

Causes

Common causes of arrhythmias or conditions that can lead to arrhythmias include:

  • Coronary artery disease
  • Diabetes
  • Drug abuse
  • Excessive use of alcohol or caffeine
  • Heart defects you’re born with (congenital heart defects)
  • High blood pressure
  • Smoking In a healthy person with a normal, healthy heart, it’s unlikely for a deadly arrhythmia to develop without some outside trigger, such as an electrical shock or the use of illegal drugs.
