In brief: Depends on where

Since clogged arteries can occur in many places in the body, symptoms will depend on which arteries are clogged.
If they're in the heart a person may feel chest pain and have a heart attack. If they're in the leg, there may be pain in the calves while walking. Clogged arteries in the neck or brain can lead to a stroke. If the artery to an organ gets clogged it can lead to failure of that organ.
