In brief: Acute vs Chronic
Everything depend on how fast(acute) the disease valve malfunction vs if malfunction slowly through a period of time.
Almost invariable you will have chest pain with shortness of breath from a congestive heart failure. Also depend on the type of malfunction: stenosis vs regurgitation.
