Post Covid-19 Recovery, 5 Warning Signs the Heart Patients Need to Watch Out for!

As the current state of the Covid-19 pandemic brims with stress, learning about heart health has become more important than ever. Many believe that Covid 19 is only impacting the lungs and respiratory organs. However, it is important to be equally wary of cardiac developments too.

The after-effects of Covid-19 are affecting the body more this time than previously assumed as many are complaining of having several heart ailments post recovery from the virus.

According to a study by JAMA, 70% of patients suffer from at least one symptom related to heart ailment post-Covid-19 recovery. Also, many experts believe that shortness of oxygen in the body can be blamed for heart troubles too. However, the American Heart Association (AHA) says a growing number of studies suggest many Covid-19 survivors may also experience some type of heart damage, even if they didn’t have underlying heart disease and weren’t sick enough to be hospitalized.

Therefore, you need to pay attention to the warning signs that your heart is suffering from post-Covid-19 recovery

Chest pain

If you are feeling some kind of uneasiness in your heart like chest pain, heaviness, discomfort or something like this then it's a matter of concern. If the pain is not dealt with it may spread to your arms, neck and other parts.

Extreme sweating

Extreme sweating is one of the major symptoms of a heart ailment. Therefore, even if you have recovered from Covid-19 make sure to keep a check on your body temperature and seek medical help immediately.

Breathlessness

If you are having difficulty in breathing and are experiencing shortness of breath then it can be a serious issue that needs immediate attention. In this case, there's a possibility that your body is lacking oxygen in your vital organs. This can not just impact your heart but also your lungs.

Drop in oxygen levels

Keep measuring your oxygen levels even after you have recovered from Covid-19 as fluctuations in your oxygen levels can be dangerous. It can be a result of irregular heartbeat and other severe issues which can't be ignored.

Dizziness

Dizziness is one of the biggest warning symptoms of a cardiac arrest. If you are experiencing lightheadedness or fatigue so much so that it is getting difficult to stand and sit then seek medical help as soon as possible.
