Types of Heart Disease
At Forum Health, we provide support for various types of heart disease, including:
Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
This can manifest as pressure, tightness, squeezing, or burning in the chest, often referred to as angina. It may also radiate to the neck, jaw, shoulders, back, or arms.
Feeling breathless, especially during physical activity or while lying down, can be a sign of heart disease.
Persistent tiredness or lack of energy, even after adequate rest, can indicate heart problems.
Valvular Heart Disease
Feeling dizzy, faint, or lightheaded, particularly when standing up quickly, may be a symptom of reduced blood flow to the brain due to heart issues.

- High blood pressure
