What are the symptoms of ARVD?

If you have ARVD, you may notice that your heart often beats very fast. You may feel like your heart is "skipping a beat" or that you can't catch your breath. ARVD sometimes causes chest pain that may seem like a heart attack. Other symptoms of ARVD include dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath with activity and swelling of the legs, ankles and feet.

You should see your doctor right away if you have any of these problems. Your doctor can test you for ARVD and other heart problems.
