February is always known for Valentines but also as Heart Health Month. Everyday we work hard and try to squeeze all we can do in a day but we need to take time out for ourselves. We had a Sales Counselor here in Cinco Ranch that was too busy to take time out to go get checked even though she was in excruciating pain; by the time she finally went to the doctor the test they concluded she had had a heart attack; she then had surgery; she was lucky her heart attack did not kill her.
The National Institute of Health states that 1 out of 4 women die from heart disease. It is the #1 killer of both men and women in the United States.
Heart disease can strike at any age, no one is immune. Please go to the doctor immediately if you have any of the following:
*** Shortness of breath
Swelling in your feet or ankles, legs, or abdomen
Rapid weight gain
Tiredness or fatigue
Lack of appetite or nausea
Confusion, impaired thinking or impaired memory loss
Increased heart rate

Please take the time to go see a Doctor if not for you for your loved ones!
