Coronary artery disease (CAD)Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a long-term sickness that affects the coronary arteries in your heart. The build-up of cholesterol inside of the arteries keeps the blood from getting to the heart and may lead to heart failure.
Some symptoms of coronary artery disease are:
- Chest pressure and/or pain with activity or when at rest
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Shortness of breath
- Heavy sweating
It is also possible to have no symptoms. That is why it is so important to have regular check-ups with your doctor.
