A 31-year-old male asked:

If echocardiogram, full blood count and bnp are normal & there has been no swelling, is heart failure unlikely, even if other symptoms are present?

Theres different: heart failures. But it is pretty unlikely with all of those being normal. High thyroid, severe thiamine deficiency, severe dehydration can cause heart failure but I think they would still show something (like elevated BNP).
