There are some classic symptoms of heart problems. These are dyspnea (difficult respiration), chest pain, syncope (spontaneous loss of consciousness), palpitations, edema, cyanosis and fatigue. There is a definite reason behind all these symptoms of heart problem. When there is an altered heart function, dyspnea occurs.Similarly, when the heart beats at the rate higher than 100 beats/minute, palpitation is felt. Heart rhythm disturbances and abnormalities in the veins of lower extremities give rise to syncope and edema respectively. Any defect in the heart surely causes pulmonary insufficiency and sleep deprivation. Deficiency of oxygen in the body results in cyanosis and lack of sleep leads to fatigue.These are only some of the commonly observed heart problem symptoms . The list of discomfort is quite long and is often characteristic to a particular heart disease.
