In brief: Shortness of breath

Heart failure often leads to excessive fluid in the system, causing shortness of breath, swelling, or increased abdominal girth.
Also, patients may feel more short of breath lying down or wake up at night gasping for breath. People may also feel fatigued, washed out, lightheaded, or without appetite.
