In brief: Variable
It depends upon the severity of the cardiomyopathy and ranges from no symptoms at all to severe symptoms that do not allow the individual to perform normal daily tasks.
Presenting symptoms, when present, include fatigue, shortness of breath and palpitations.

In brief: None to severe
The commonest symptoms is breathlessness, at first with marked exertion but less so as the severity progresses.
Eventually, patients are short of breath lying down (orthopnea), sometimes only after several hours of reclining (paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea). Swelling of the legs (edema) and eventually of the abdomen (ascites) may occur. Rhythm disturbances are also common.
