What are the symptoms of heart problems?

I just finished a echo stress echo with treadmill. I had no problem doing the required time and the tech did not offer to stop it so can I assume that I may receive a fairly good report. Wouldn't I have had some shortness of breath, chest pain, etc if I had much of a heart problem?

Hello welcome to HCM.
Proper cardiac evaluation requires 2 d echo and trademill stress test. It will give you idea about heart pumping, it's all functions as well as heart's own blood supply.
If you have undergone stress echo testing than it usually correlates both this test. If this study is normal than you should be happy. At present your heart gets enough blood supply and it's functions are within normal limits.
It's not always to have symptoms while stress test. Sometimes doc can diagnose problems without any complaints by patients.
Usuall symptoms of heart disease are-

1 . chest pain which increases on walking.
2 . breathlessness.
3. palpitations.
4 . perspiration and uneasiness.
Thank you.
