Some indicate more serious conditions than others, but prolonged experience of these symptoms indicates that you may have some form of heart disease, and should therefore seek medical attention.
Some patients may have advanced underlying disease without any symptoms. These patients with a high level of risk factors for coronary disease may elect to undergo screening tests even in the absence of symptoms.
An initial consultation will explore your health history and any heart conditions suffered by closely-related family members. Then it is likely you will have an electrocardiogram (ECG) test, which takes around 10 minutes, and following that possibly an echocardiogram, which takes an additional 30 minutes.
If these tests indicate that a heart condition is present, then further screening and tests may be required to determine the exact nature of your condition and most suitable course of treatment.
The tests and treatments for heart disease are varied depending upon the exact condition that has been diagnosed. Please refer to the individual conditions pages as well as the treatments listed for further information.
