Spotting the Symptoms of Heart Valve Disease

Last updated 3 years ago

Heart valve disease can lead to serious complications with heart health. Unfortunately, many heart valve diseases have non-distinct symptoms that might be confused with the normal effects of aging. This video explains that chest discomfort, lightheadedness, and chronic fatigue can all point to valve disease, but a diagnosis cannot be made on symptoms alone. When you see a doctor, he or she will typically diagnose the valve malfunction due to the presence of a heart murmur.

If you are having any of the symptoms described in this video, call Northside Hospital at (888) 598-9586 to find a physician for your cardiac care. Our Heart Institute can provide you with comprehensive cardiac care at all stages of life.
