7 signs and symptoms of heart blockage

Pravrajya Suruchi

Chest pain or discomfort (angina): This is the most common symptom of heart blockage. The pain or discomfort can feel like pressure, tightness, squeezing, or burning in the chest.

Shortness of breath: This symptom can occur with or without chest pain. You may feel short of breath at rest, during exertion, or when lying down.

Pain in the upper body: The discomfort associated with heart blockage can extend to your upper body, including the shoulder, arm, back, jaw, or neck.

Fatigue: You may feel unusually tired or fatigued, even after minimal exertion. This is because your heart isn't getting the oxygen-rich blood it needs to function properly.

Nausea or vomiting: These symptoms are more common in women than in men experiencing a heart blockage.

Sweating: Unexplained sweating, particularly at night, can be a sign of heart blockage.
