What are the symptoms of cardiomyopathy?
Cardiomyopathy can have no symptoms for many people, particularly in the early stages. As the condition worsens, signs and symptoms of heart failure are an indicator of the condition. These can include: difficulty breathing; shortness of breath, particularly when exercising; tiredness or fatigue; swelling in the abdomen, feet, ankles or legs; lung crackles, indicating fluid build-up on the lungs; dizziness and fainting; irregular heartbeats, and; chest pain.
