The Munson Healthcare heart team has provided advanced heart care longer than any other team in northern Michigan. We do more heart procedures than anyone else – and that experience benefits the patients we treat.

Know Your Heart

Chest pain is not always present in people with heart disease. Instead, other symptoms can be the signals that mean you may have heart disease. These include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Unexplained aches and pains in your chest, arms, neck, or jaw
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swollen feet or ankles
  • Heart palpitations
  • Regular dizziness or light-headedness

When to Call Your Doctor

It's better to err on the side of caution, especially if you have:

  • Symptoms that come on with activity and are relieved with rest
  • Several symptoms at a time, such as fatigue and swollen feet
  • Known heart disease or factors that raise your risk for heart disease (like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or smoking)
