In brief: Several; see below

Symptoms of heart failure include: shortness of breath; sometimes breathing more easily while sitting straight up or standing; tiredness, weakness, or dizziness; rapid or irregular heartbeat; swollen ankles, legs or abdomen; and weight gain.
Whether some or all of these symptoms occur may depend on the severity of heart failure.
