Dear Sarah,

There are so many symptoms which could point in the direction of heart problems, that I cannot list them all here. The symptoms will vary according to what kind of heart problem you have, so it is not by any means a cut and dried picture.

If you are uncertain that whatever symptoms you have might be heart problems, then you should see you doctor, and arrange to have a full check-up, ECG and treadmill test. If your GP cannot do this, then ask him to refer you to a cardiologist. Whichever doctor you see, he will ask you many detailed questions which will help him decide what is actually going on. This sort of problem cannot be sorted out with a forum service like this, so please do see your doctor.

Good luck.
