Heart failure is a long-term progressive heart disease that tends to get gradually worse over time. It can occur at any age but is most common in with the elderly. The pumping function of the heart is reduced, therefore not enough blood, oxygen and nutrients can reach organs and parts of the body. The most common signs are breathing difficulties, tiredness and listlessness, increased swelling (oedema) especially on the legs and ankles, chest pain or tightness, cold feeling in the limbs, coughing, weight gain, severe exhaustion, frequent nocturnal urination, dizziness and concentration problems.
The cause of a circulatory disorder is usually deposition in the vessels, furthermore, injuries as well as inflammatory diseases, vascular blockages are the reason for this disease. If the blood can no longer flow sufficiently through the limbs (arms, hands, legs, feet) that are farthest from the body, nutrients and oxygen also can’t reach the cells. This is often indicated by the fact that the affected areas feel cold. Paleness and numbness, tingling or pain (especially when being stressed) can also occur.
