Coronary Artery Disease

Coronary Artery Disease - Symptoms

Coronary Artery Disease varies in signs and symptoms and in severity. 
  • No symptoms - Referred to as silent ischaemia, you do not have any symptoms although blood supply to your heart may be restricted.
  • Chest pain (Angina) – Usually brought about by physical or emotional stress. It feels like a heavy weight on your chest.
  • Shortness of breath - Occurs when the heart fails due to damage of heart muscles
  • Heart attack - Caused by a blood clot or rupture in a narrowed coronary artery. The part of the heart muscle fed by that artery dies. Pain from a heart attack is often described as a crushing pain and may feel similar to angina, but lasts longer.
