What Are the Symptoms of Dilated Cardiomyopathy?

Q:

I don’t feel right about my heartbeats recently, and my legs are swollen. I’m afraid I may have dilated cardiomyopathy. What are other symptoms of this disease?

A:

At early stage, dilated cardiomyopathy seldom causes any symptom. But after years of development, its signs begin to appear. Some people with dilated cardiomyopathy only have minor signs, while others suffer a lot from them. That’s due to the severity of the disease and the patient’s physical condition.

People at any age may have dilated cardiomyopathy, so its symptoms may occur on people from children to seniors.
