The symptoms of this disease are a feeling of heaviness or chest pain that oftenly mistaken for heartburn. These feelings can also be experienced in the arms or shoulders and neck, jaw, back or neck. Breath shortness is also one of many symptoms of a heart attack
Abnormal heart rhythms, also known as arrhythmias, have symptoms such as palpitations, dizziness, fainting, palpitations, chest discomfort, shortness of breath and fatigue.

Are you aware that nearly 107 million Americans have total cholesterol of 200 mg/dL or higher, a level at which cardiovascular risk begins to rise.
Mike Flowers of you-and-your-cholesterol.com states that “High Cholesterol and Triglyceride (blood fat) can easily be controlled by following a few simple rules and without giving up some of the pleasures you enjoy most!”
Mr. Flowers also added that ten years ago his doctor wanted to place him on medication due to his high cholesterol levels.
“I was totally shocked because I felt fine, and was going to see him for something unrelated.
At that point, I started thinking about my dad and the Quadruple Bypass he had a couple years earlier.
I convinced my doctor to give me 30 days to reduce my Cholesterol, and get it under control. If not, I would be more than happy to start taking the medication.
When I returned to his office 30 days later, he was completely amazed at how low my levels were and told me to continue doing what I was doing.
To be honest with you, I was more amazed than he was. I was thrilled…not expecting such good results.
It has been ten years since that visit, and each time I visit his office for a check up my levels are consistently good!
A lot of people can lower their levels by incorporating the right diet plan, knowing what foods to stay away from, educating themselves on the benefits of natural herbs, cholesterol information and having a simple exercise regiment.
Unfortunately for some, no matter what they do – they will not be able to get their levels under control and will have to seek the advice of their medical professional.”
