Heart Failure: Signs Your Treatment Isn’t Working
6. Increased heart rate
When your heart struggles to pump the right amount of blood, it may speed up to make up for it. This can lead to palpitations, which could cause your heart to race or feel like it’s fluttering or throbbing.
7. Confusion, trouble thinking
Unusual amounts of things like sodium in your blood can bring disorientation, confusion, or memory loss.
If you’ve seen any of these seven red flags, get medical help right away. Waiting for symptoms to get worse can be dangerous. With the right care, you can keep things under control.
