Aortic stenosis

Heart Disease

Symptoms of aortic stenosis

If the aortic stenosis is mild, there may be no symptoms at all, or tiredness may be the only symptom. If the stenosis is greater, other symptoms may include chest pain and/or breathlessness during exertion, palpitations, dizziness and fainting, especially during exertion.

Heart failure may develop, causing symptoms that include tiredness, breathlessness and fluid retention in the legs, for example.
