2. Having sexual problems:
One of the most obvious signs of a person having heart problems is erectile dysfunction. It can be caused by blocked arteries, preventing blood from flowing to the penis.
3. High blood pressure:
A healthy heart maintains a normal blood pressure level. High blood pressure levels can increase your risk of having a heart attack, stroke, or cardiovascular disease.

Coughs can also be a sign of a heart problem. When a person has congestive heart failure, pleural fluid can overflow, causing a sudden, prolonged cough, accompanied by a feeling of wheezing and shortness of breath – similar to asthma symptoms.
5. Snoring or difficulty breathing while sleeping:
Sleep apnea often causes people to snore and stop breathing in episodes during sleep, leading to an increased risk of heart attack or atrial fibrillation, a type of heart rhythm disorder.
6. Foot hair loss:
Losing leg hair can be a sign that your blood vessels are constricting, reducing blood flow to your legs, leaving your legs deprived of oxygen. Without nutrition from the blood, the hair follicles cannot grow.
7. Swollen legs and feet:
When the heart can’t pump blood effectively, the blood vessels constrict, pushing excess fluid into the tissues, leading to swelling caused by fluid retention in the feet, legs, and abdomen.
8. Shoulder pain or jaw pain:
Neck or jaw pain can be an early sign of angina, a cardiovascular problem caused by a lack of oxygen in the heart.
9. Shortness of breath:
If you feel dizzy from shortness of breath while jogging or climbing stairs, it could be a warning sign that your heart is not healthy.
