The symptoms can range from no symptoms, to stages of severe aortic stenosis. Aortic Stenosis is often diagnosed by your doctor when they hear a heart murmur. A murmur is an extra sound the heart makes and most of the time, a heart murmur is due to a heart valve not working properly.
Other symptoms of Aortic Stenosis include chest pain or tightness in the chest, feeling faint, shortness of breath, fatigue and heart palpitations.
Aortic Stenosis can also lead to heart failure. Some of the early signs of heart failure include fatigue, shortness of breath, and swollen ankles and feet.
In infants and children, Aortic Stenosis can often have no symptoms. Children may often experience fatigue or may have chest pain during physical activity. If you or your child experiences any of these symptoms, it is important to visit your doctor.
