In brief: Not usually

A bruit is just the sound of turbulent blood flow, like the rapids of a river. These tend to be found at places of narrowing or plaque buildup.
The symptoms tend to be related to low perfusion or plaque breaking off. Not all bruits are harmful; not all narrowing has bruit. Ultrasound and/or ct/mri can help diagnose.
