There is a lot of variations in the symptoms of cardiomyopathy.
Possible symptoms of dilated cardiomyopathy:
- Shortness of breath, especially during exertion
- Difficulty breathing while lying down
- Leg swelling
- Chest pain
Possible symptoms of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy are generally same as the symptoms of dilated cardiomyopathy. Rarely the first symptom may be fainting or even sudden death. It can also cause heart attack, usually during exercise.
Possible symptoms of restrictive cardiomyopathy are fluid accumulates in the legs and abdomen. This condition also can cause shortness of breath, especially during exertion.
Irrespective of type of cardiomyopathy you have, signs and symptoms tend to get worse unless treated. This worsening happens quickly in certain people, while in others, cardiomyopathy may not worsen for a long time.
