What Are the Symptoms of Cardiomyopathy?

Q:

If a person has cardiomyopathy, what symptoms will he have?

A:

In early stage cardiomyopathy, it is hard even for doctors to notice any symptoms of the disease. As it develops, signs gradually become noticeable. Symptoms of cardiomyopathy include:

Rapid, fluttering or pounding heartbeats/irregular or abnormal heartbeats

Shortness of breath on exertion

Fatigue

Dizziness and fainting

Chest pain

Cough while lying down

Swollen feet, ankles and legs

Bloating of the abdomen due to fluid buildup

If left untreated, the symptoms will get worse. How fast the signs can worsen relates to the patient’s specific physical condition. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are helpful to relieve these symptoms.
