Many uneducated people mistake a heart attack for heart failure. Despite the fact that in both diseases of the heart are involved, they are very distinct from one another. Blood flow into the heart is diminished or entirely interrupted during a heart attack, which is a fatal condition where the heart muscles start to die.
Heart failure is a lifelong condition in which the heart muscle can't pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs for blood and oxygen.
People live longer with early detection and appropriate treatment. Let's examine some heart failure symptoms as described by the Mayo Clinic.
1. Feeling short of breath while performing an activity. Sometimes, even when you're not doing anything—like while you're lying down—you could have shortness of breath.
2. The person will experience exhaustion and weakness because the heart is unable to pump enough blood throughout the body. This symptom is frequently disregarded. If you consistently feel worn out and frail, you should go to the hospital.
3. Swelling of the legs, ankles, and feet is another sign of heart failure that we shouldn't ignore. You should consult a medical professional to inquire about your heart scan if you feel like your legs and feet are swollen. you might have heart failure.
