In brief: Symptoms?

Do you mean symptoms? (signs are physical findings your doctor detects during an examination).
AR causes no symptoms for many decades, but when it finally does start to cause symptoms, it's congestive heart failure - shortness of breath with minimal exertion or at rest. Less common symptoms are: angina (chest pain) and syncope (passing out).
