What are other signs of heart disease?

Answer

There are other symptoms besides "angina", or chest pain, that can come from heart disease. Palpitations, or a racing or skipping heart beat, may be signs or a serious arrhythmia. Shortness of breath may be a sign of a weakened heart muscle or a heart valve problems. Passing out, or "syncope", may be a sign of an arrhythmia, valve problem or weakened heart muscle. Any of these symptoms should be evaluated by your doctor, or by a cardiologist, to determine why you are experiencing these symptoms.
