8 Warning Signs That Your Heart Doesn’t Work Properly

3. Swollen legs, ankles, and feet

When your heart is not pumping well, fluid from your blood vessels leaks into surrounding tissues and your legs and feet are the most common places of affliction simply due to gravity. This is called peripheral edema and many people who have it do not have heart disease. But still, it is a very common symptom amongst heart disease patients and you should pay close attention to it.

 

4. Lack of appetite and feeling nauseous

Many patients that suffer from heart disease show a lack of appetite and/or nausea even if they’ve had just a few bites to eat. The reason for that is a build-up of fluid around the liver and the intestines interfering with proper digestion. These symptoms are usually followed by abdominal pain and if you are experiencing all of them together, you should visit your doctor immediately.
