If you think that something is wrong with your heart, pay attention to the subtle clues it sends you.
“A lot of women kind of blow this off assuming it’s nothing and that they will feel better, but in reality it could be a sign of your heart,” says Suzanne Steinbaum, DO, Director of Women’s Heart Health at the Heart and Vascular Institute at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City.
The main reason why you feel tired comes from lack of oxygen. “The heart is struggling and straining to deliver the oxygen to your body.” That said, many Americans feel exhausted for lots of reasons. If this is your only symptom, you can talk to your doctor, but don’t conclude you have heart trouble based on this alone.
