What Symptoms Are Suggestive Of Heart Disease?

Dr. Christopher Cannon answers the question: 'Symptoms Of Heart Disease?'

— -- Question: What symptoms are suggestive of heart disease?

Answer: The symptoms suggestive of coronary artery disease are frequently thought of as chest pain or chest pressure. It can be in the upper chest area or in the stomach area, the left arm, frequently also in the jaw.

But many times, patients won't feel symptoms, frequently if they have diabetes or are more stable. And so, it can be an indicator, but is not always present.
