2. Trouble Catching Your Breath
If you are finding that you are starting to get winded by normal everyday activities that never bothered you before, it could be a sign your heart needs help. Things like climbing a set of stairs or walking the dog. It’s good to try to think back about a year and if you were having a much easier time of it then, it may be a sign that you should talk to your doctor. Another tell-tale sign is getting winded when you lay down. That may not sound like it makes a whole lot of sense, but it’s actually a symptom of a heart valve problem that should be checked out.
