Heart symptoms in kids

3 common signs that could indicate a heart-related problem.

Is your child having heart symptoms?

We understand that heart symptoms in children can seem scary, but they are also very common.

Most of the time, these symptoms will not indicate a heart problem. However, it is always a good idea to ask your pediatrician about any concerns you have about your child’s heart health. If needed, your child’s doctor can make a referral to a pediatric cardiologist at Wolfson Children’s Terry Heart Institute.
