- Loss of equilibrium
- Severe headache
- Pain in the chest and shoulder
- Strong palpitations
- Nausea, vomiting not associated with digestive disorders
This pathology is characterized by the inability of the heart to perform its role of circulating blood around the body. There are multiple causes but the main reasoning for heart failure is that of inactivity. If it is used less, the heart muscle can weaken over time.
A healthy heart is the motor of life.
Our English-speaking cardiologists welcome you for the diagnosis and treatment of all your cardiovascular problems.
