Aortic stenosis is a heart problem usually associated with the narrowing of the aortic valve, leading to impeded blood flow from the heart to the rest of the body. Detecting symptoms of aortic stenosis is very important for effective early diagnosis and proper intervention. The symptoms are observed in patients’ regular lives, from shortness of breath and chest pain to fainting and fatigue. Such symptoms can prompt people to visit medical centres immediately for proper diagnosis and treatment.

What are the Symptoms of Aortic Stenosis?

Aortic stenosis symptoms may include chest pain, rapid and fluttering heartbeat, trouble breathing or feeling short of breath, dizziness, light-headedness, fainting, difficulty walking short distances, swollen ankles or feet, and difficulty sleeping or needing to sleep sitting up.

Valve stenosis symptoms depend on severity. Some individuals may not experience marked symptoms, while others may show symptoms of tiredness, chest pain, difficulty breathing, and fainting. In infants and children with congenital aortic stenosis, the symptoms can include fatigue after exercise, failure to gain weight, breathing difficulties, and feeding problems. Frequent check ups with healthcare providers and consulting with them regularly are paramount for early detection and control.
