Infectious endocarditis - Symptoms

The most common symptom is that of fever. This can be associated with chills, anorexia, unexplained weight loss, lethargy and night sweats. 

Often, if there is spread of the infection to other parts of the body, patients can present with abdominal pain, joint pain, stroke-like symptoms, chest pain and even shortness of breath. If their infective endocarditis is associated with dental infection, they can also present with tooth pain together with the above symptoms.
