Farmers tend to have lofty opinions of their own toughness.

Many people in the city have unhealthy lifestyles, so they believe that this is a major cause of heart problems. However, heart disease is NOT uncommon among farmers.

Having trouble breathing is the first symptom. This issue can crop up for a variety of harmless reasons, but it’s also a warning sign of impending heart problems. Be on the lookout for sudden bouts of shortness of breath that don’t seem to have a clear cause, like stopping to catch your breath after a run.

Secondly, discomfort in the chest. Many warning signs of cardiac causes for chest pain are actually located in the upper chest regions, near the base of the throat and neck, which runs counter to what is sometimes shown on television. Also, you can feel them in your upper back and arms. The affected (typically) left arm may feel the ache at times. Sometimes they are mild and not at all painful. Please seek medical attention if you experience such symptoms occasionally. Perhaps it’s just your chest muscles, but you should check anyway.

Experiencing a sense of dread that something bad is going to happen. It’s hard to put into words, but many heart attack survivors say they felt this way before their attack. When there is no obvious cause or other symptom, one may experience a vague unease or even a panic attack due to the feeling that something is “not right” on the inside.

Aching abdominal muscles and frequent flushing are symptom number four. These are most likely related to the extremely spicy curry you ate last night, but they may also be a sign of heart trouble.

5 Heart palpitations. Palpitation can come in a variety of forms, some of which are relatively harmless despite being distressing and uncomfortable. It is often impossible to determine the precise cause. However, like some of the above symptoms, they may be an early sign that something isn’t right with the “old ticker” and should be looked into.

6 – Exhaustion. It’s not out of the ordinary for farmers to get tired after putting in a few long hours operating heavy machinery like a zero-turn mower, tractor, krone hay making equipment, etc. That is consistent with everyday life. The opposite is true, however: if you’re worn out despite your lack of activity, something may be wrong. It could mean that you need to get more sleep, reduce your stress levels, or cut back on your consumption of whatever libation strikes your fancy, but it could also be a symptom of a more serious condition, such as coronary artery disease, if it occurs frequently.

It’s important to see a doctor if you’re experiencing any of the above, and it’s essential if you have multiple.
