My husband was diagnosed with heart failure roughly 18 months, he is on medication for not only his heart, but also his blood pressure and also fluid retention. Are all these health factors linked to heart failure

dragon,

Yes, high blood pressure and fluid retention (edema) are perhaps the two most common symptoms associated with heart failure.

Yes sir, you tell them about this high blood pressure and edema are the most common of all to be associated with heart issues!!!!!! Keep on with the other symptoms as well for heart attacks. This is not something you should avoid discussing
