Does heart failure always happen after a heart attack? What are the symptoms of heart failure and does heart attacks always lead to heart failure?

Heart: Heart failure can cause shortness of breath, which may worsen with activity or when lying down or sleeping. Heart failure can also cause chest pain, fatigue, exercise intolerance, swelling of the legs, abdominal fullness, loss of appetite, weight gain, or heart palpitations. The symptoms are related to water retention and decreased ability for the heart to maintain adequate blood flow to the body's vital organs. Heart attacks are the most common cause of heart failure, but they do not always lead to heart failure. In the modern era, there are several ways to treat heart attacks which minimize the risk of developing heart failure later. If you have had a heart attack, it is crucial to improve your risk factors to help prevent more heart attacks or the development of heart failure. This means eating healthy, exercising, not smoking tobacco, and controlling your blood pressure and cholesterol. ...Read more
