Atherosclerosis do cause lots of diseases. And here are the most serious three ones and the related warning signs:
  1. Coronary artery disease. The warning signs here include chest pain, shortness of breath and fatigue.
  2. Cerebrovascular disease. Atherosclerosis is likely to cause the TIA. So if you have difficulty speaking and abnormal weakness, do not ignore it.
  3. Peripheral arterial disease. Poor leg circulation is obvious here and poor feet healing is also a signal.
Moreover, Coronary artery disease may occur without any warning signs. Keywords: coronary artery atherosclerosis symptoms.   Related FAQ: http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=4369 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=4303 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=3956
Answer to this
Most people have chest discomfort during a heart attack, especially after the sternum. Of course, some people may only have chest tightness. There are also a few people who do not have chest tightness and chest pain at all. Chest tightness and chest pain are only symptoms of typical angina or myocardial infarction.

Those who need to pay more attention are those with atypical symptoms. If an elderly patient has previously suffered from chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and coronary heart disease, it is necessary to consider heart attack such as myocardial infarction when there is pain below the teeth and above the navel. Especially those who feel that their throat is tight, their breath is short, their upper limbs are numb, and they have upper abdominal pain!

Female patients do not have any special differences with men during a heart attack, but female patients are more likely to have symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, shortness of breath, and paleness, in addition to the typical symptoms of chest tightness and chest pain.

If you have a very bad feeling, you should call 911.
The symptoms of heart attack are panic, chest tightness, shortness of breath, chest pain, etc. But there are no symptoms in the early stage of the disease. You can detect them by coronary CTA.
