The heart is one of the most important organs of your body. It works day and night, non-stop, throughout your life. So, isn’t it your responsibility to take good care of your heart by maintaining a healthy lifestyle?

Did you know that according to a survey, most Americans are dying because of different types of heart-related diseases? And if you are under the impression that these patients might be elderly persons, then let us clarify – that is not the case! Heart stroke, heart attacks, or any other deadly disease related to the heart are no longer confined to the elderly. In fact, they are most commonly noticed in young and middle-aged people. Whether you blame it on their lifestyle or their genes, this is true, and is quite alarming and cause for worry.

You might have also heard of the model Katie May, who died recently in February 2016 at the mere age of 34. The reason – a stroke. It was when the news spread like wildfire that people realized that young people could also be victims of stroke. But, to be honest, it is not like you get a heart attack or stroke all of a sudden, and you get hospitalized. Your body starts to show warning symptoms early on. And if you’re aware and smart enough to recognize those symptoms, you still have time to protect yourself from the risk of heart diseases or stroke. Without stretching it any further, let us learn a bit about what those early signs are.

You might experience shortness of breath or difficulty in breathing quite often before a stroke occurs. In medical terms, shortness of breath is known as dyspnea.
