About 610,000 Americans die from heart disease each year, with it being the leading cause of death for both men and women. Most people solely think about chest pain or labored breathing when it comes to detecting heart problems, but there are more lesser known signs.

One sign is the swelling of the lower legs and feet, which comes from fluid retention, called peripheral edema. While this isn’t always caused by heart disease, when it is, it’s due to the heart not pumping blood properly, resulting in fluid from within the blood vessels leaking out into the tissue.
