Name any two heart conditions that occur commonly. Briefly explain each of them.
- Palpitations: Sometimes, one may experience the heart beating too hard or too fast or sometimes even skipping a beat. This can be frightening, but not serious or harmful and often this condition goes away on its own. Most of the time it is caused by stress or anxiety. Sometimes certain types of food may also cause palpitations.
In rare cases, palpitations may be an indication of a more serious heart condition, specially if it is accompanied by shortness of breath, dizziness or chest pain.
- Hypertension: This is a condition that occurs in a person when blood flows through the blood vessels with a force greater than normal. This is also called High Blood Pressure. Hypertension can strain the heart, damage blood vessels and increase the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
