Heart Disease and Exercise
Other Warnings and Precautions
Stop exercising and call your doctor right away if you have any of the following:
- Chest pain
- Dizziness or light-headedness
- Unexplained weight gain or swelling
- Pressure or pain in your chest, neck, arm, jaw, or shoulder
- Any other symptoms that cause concern
If the symptoms continue after you stop exercising, or if they are severe, call 911.
Working out may make your muscles sore at first. That's normal, and soreness will fade as your body gets used to the movements. But if you have any sudden or severe pain, stop exercising.
