Heart failure is a condition where your heart can’t pump enough blood to meet your body’s needs. Heart failure doesn’t mean that your heart has stopped or is about to stop working. It means your heart can’t handle demands of everyday activities.
Heart failure leads to shortness of breath and fatigue that tends to increase with physical exertion. Heart failure also can cause swelling in the feet, ankles, legs, abdomen and veins in the neck.
