Congestive heart fai: For how long you had these symptoms. You are describing typical symptoms of congestive heart failure.
A Heart rate of 120 is very abnormal, if is irregular you may have uncontrolled atrial fibrillation.
You should see a cardiologist, like today, or go to an ER,now.
Do not waist time, as other conditions may be present.
You may require cardiac cardioversion.l
