Heart Disease: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on February 5, 2017

Below the surface, living with heart disease can mean days spent in bed, unpredictable energy levels, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to life with heart disease than meets the eye. We know that heart disease comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms and medication side effects, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On MyHeartDiseaseTeam.com, the social network and online support group for people living with heart disease, members discuss the impactful nature of heart disease and its hidden symptoms. MyHeartDiseaseTeam has grown to reach 8,000+ members, and members have shared hundreds of conversations about life with heart disease. Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyHeartDiseaseTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent heart disease because the life-impacting implications of heart disease aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread heart disease awareness!



This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
