WHAT ARE CHRONIC HEART FAILURE (HF) SYMPTOMS & CAUSES?

Chronic Heart Failure Causes

These are some of the problems that could weaken your heart and lead to chronic heart failure:

A Heart Attack May Lead to Chronic HF

A heart attack might have damaged your heart.

High Blood Pressure May Lead to Chronic HF

High blood pressure makes your heart work harder to pump blood. Over time, this can cause your heart to wear down.

Clogged or Narrow Arteries May Lead to Chronic HF

Clogged or narrow arteries filled with fat and cholesterol can decrease the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your heart so that, over time, your heart gets weaker.

Lung Disease, Diabetes and Other Conditions May Lead to Chronic HF

Lung disease, diabetes, and other conditions can lead to chronic heart failure.

Chronic Heart Failure Symptoms

What you might feel when you have chronic heart failure:

  • Heart beating too fast, too slow, or unsteady
  • Feeling weak or tired
  • Having trouble breathing
  • Being dizzy
  • Swelling/congestion in your belly, feet, legs, or ankles
  • Wheezing or coughing regularly
  • Higher or lower than normal blood pressure
  • Pain or pressure in your chest
  • Rapid weight gain - 5 pounds in a week or 3 pounds in a day
  • Loss of appetite

Chronic heart failure symptoms may vary from person to person. It's possible that you may not experience all of the symptoms above, or that the symptoms may be due to other conditions. Talk to your doctor or nurse about your specific symptoms and which ones may or may not be caused by chronic heart failure.
