What are the symptoms of clogged arteries?

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.
