    Are you listening to your heart? 

    You should. It could save your life. Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S. In fact, one out of four deaths is due to heart disease.

    People who have heart disease often don’t realize it. Don’t be a statistic and be caught unaware. Stay in tune with your heart. Learn the signs—all the signs—of a possible heart attack or stroke. 

    Top 3 signs of heart disease you should never ignore:

    Chest pain or discomfort

    This is the classic heart attack symptom, although men and women can experience chest pain differently. Men are more likely to feel crushing, squeezing, or burning pain. Or, the pain may feel like pressure or fullness in the center of the chest. It may radiate to the neck, one or both arms, the shoulders, or the jaw. Women tend to feel tightness or pressure in the center of their chest that lasts more than a few minutes. Chest pain or discomfort can even go away and then return.

    Shortness of Breath 

    In women, shortness of breath can occur with or without chest discomfort, Men may simultaneously experience flu-like symptoms, sweating, and a weak pulse.

    Lightheadedness

    Feeling lightheaded or dizzy often goes hand in hand with these other symptoms.
