As an individual sunrefifg from this deadly disease, I can tell you that for me the first sign of congestive heart failure was fatigue. Being over 55 years, I thought it’s owing to natural progression of age. However, I would find my daily morning walks tiresome, which was the first indication. I visited the family physician and a check-up revealed that high blood pressure put me at risk of developing heart failure. I am undergoing treatment presently and plan to begin my morning strolls soon.
