The problem of heart failure is increasing worldwide and has become a major concern, as the weakening of the heart muscle causes insufficient blood supply to other organs resulting in heart failure, and advanced stages of this condition that develop over time can be fatal, so it is important to understand Symptoms, causes and seek medical help as soon as possible, according to the report published on the “Times of India” website.
The most common symptoms of advanced heart failure are:
shortness of breath
It is one of the most common symptoms of heart failure, which occurs when doing any physical activity or even while resting or sleeping. Returning blood from the lungs to the heart. This occurs when the heart is unable to keep up with blood flow and causes fluid to leak into the lungs.
Another symptom of advanced heart failure that results in white or pinkish mucus tinged with blood is a buildup of fluid in the lungs.
Fatigue and tiredness
The person has great difficulty in performing daily tasks efficiently and feeling tired all the time without doing any physical activity, due to the inability of the heart to pump enough blood to meet the requirements of the body.
Swelling of the extremities such as the feet, ankles, legs, or abdomen
Due to the accumulation of excess fluid in the tissues of the body, when blood pumping becomes slower than normal, it begins to return to the heart, causing fluid to accumulate in the tissues.
Nausea and lack of appetite
This symptom occurs when the digestive system receives less blood than it needs, resulting in indigestion.
Increased heart rate or palpitations
