Congestive heart : Congestive heart disease is a very common reason for admission into a hospital. Even rare types of congestive heart failure can be at least seen on an echocardiogram. Those symptoms may not be from congestive heart failure. There many good doctors in MA that can help you.

Agree with Dr. R: Edema in legs may be from other causes, e.g. venous insufficiency, low blood proteins and kidney disease.
