From heart conditions such as coronary artery disease to congenital heart defects; there is a need to know what exactly causes heart problems and how to stop it.

Here are some warning signs that your body may be sending to alert you of a heart attack one month before it actually happens.

Sleeping problems

Waking up frequently at night to either use the bathroom or because of extreme thirst is one of the signs that your body may be sending out of a heart problem.

The best option to solve sleep disturbances is by seeking medical advice from your doctor in order to understand what is really going on.

Extreme fatigue

Everyone gets tired especially after engaging in a lot of tiresome activities or after working long hours – it is completely normal.

The problem comes in when you are always feeling tired and fatigued even after adequate rest.

Heavy arms

If you feel like your arms have an extra unexplained weight to them or feel a bit numb, it may be because of the impulses sent to your arms by the nerves that are interconnected between your heart, spine and arms.

These impulses tend to cause pain in your arms because your heart is not receiving enough oxygen in order to function.

Increased anxiety and indigestion

If you experience constant anxiety for no apparent reason, you may want to make an appointment with your physician.

Same applies to indigestion. There are certain foods that cause indigestion that could affect the functionality of your heart.

Shortness of breath

When your heart is not receiving enough oxygen, you can start feeling like you are out of breath.

This is one of the key signs of a heart attack.

Prevention

1. Eat healthy

Choose foods that are low in saturated fats, trans fats and sodium. Instead opt for plenty of fruits and vegetables, foods that are rich in fiber, fish, legumes and nuts.

Also, decrease your sugar intake and red meat intake.

2. Exercise

Run, jog or do both. Also find activities that help work all your major muscles groups such as your chest and abdomen.
