In brief: Edema & HF

Depends on the severity of the heart failure.
Edema can involve the lower extremities and progress to involve the abdominal organs causing a sensation of abdominal bloating and fullness and can ultimately cause pulmonary edema resulting in shortness of breath of variable acuity depending on the degree of fluid accumulation.
