Signs and Symptoms

Coronary artery disease can progress for years, even decades, without symptoms. But as your arteries become more and more narrowed, symptoms can manifest. Many patients, particularly the elderly and women, have atypical symptoms.

The most common typical symptoms include:

  • Angina, or chest pain with radiation to the neck, jaw or left arm
  • Shortness of breath
  • Palpitations (irregular heartbeats)
  • Weakness or dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Sweating
