Would an EKG detect heart failure? And if my EKG came back completely normal would that mean I am not having heart failure?

In brief: ECG

Ecg does not diagnose heart failure.
It is possible to have a completely normal ECG and have heart failure. It isn't highly likely but it is possible.

In brief: Ekg

You can not diagnose heart failure with an ekg.
Normal ekg also does not mean you don't have heart failure.
