not necessarily I was diagnosed with Acute Systolic Heart Failure. Not everyone has the congestion as long as it is treated with diuretics. Congestive heart failure is have so much extra fluid that it backs up into your lungs and makes it hard to breath or need high does of lasix or have to be on oxygen at home. I have cardiomyopathy , Left Ventricular Heart Failure, Leaky Mitral Valve . Reduced Ejection Fraction Rate of 20-25%
I dont know if any of the heart conditions can be improved or better yet reverse?
I didnt know the reasoning behind why they called it congestive. That makes sense thank you for explaining.
This is what I have, Systolic Heart Failure. It sounds so scary! I definitely have fatigue. This is new to me, gets kind of depressing sometimes. Glad everyone is here to get feedback and hear others experiences.
