Patient Comments: Aortic Stenosis - Symptoms

What were your symptoms of aortic stenosis?

Comment from: Piano Girl, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: September 10

I'm a 73 y/o female who has always been very active and energetic. I have always exercised regularly; most recently did morning TRX classes almost daily; also walked in my neighborhood afternoons. Two weeks ago I started having symptoms of lightheadedness, some dizziness, shortness of breath and fatigue; just a general sense of malaise. Have always had a murmur; but was told not to worry. A recent ECHO shows I have mild aortic stenosis. Was referred to a cardiologist and that apt is tomorrow. I look forward to seeing what my plan of care will be!
