In brief: Many ways
The output of your heart is reduced so that you might get short of breath, your feet and abdomen could swell, your liver can enlarge and get congested, fluid can accumulate in your lungs, your heart will enlarge.
Your lips and fingers may look bluish if the oxygen in the blood drops. Since the output of the heart becomes low, all the other organs can be affected.

Depending on how bad it is, there is not enough blood flow to any part of the body including brain, kidneys, lungs, muscles etc.
So any of these organs may suffer. You may be fatigued, short of breath, dizzy/confused etc. The symptoms are myriad!
