Signs of Congestive Heart Failure
Your heart is responsible for pumping blood to all of your organs. Blood carries nutrients and oxygen throughout your body, and it filters away wastes and carbon dioxide. Without you heart circulating your blood properly, you can suffer from serious issues such as organ failure. Thus, it is important to recognize the signs of congestive heart failure.
Thankfully, heart failure is often successfully treated by managing the cause of the problems. Congestive heart failure can be caused by clogged arteries as well as things like hypertension. Sometimes, medication like YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella can lead to hypertension. In fact, YAZ is an oral contraceptive that has been linked to serious health problems including hypertension.

Chronic Heart Failure
For some people, congestive heart failure can be an ever-present concern. Chronic heart failure builds up over time, and as it develops, you may notice symptoms such as:
- Swelling in the legs and feet
- Sudden weight gain
- Coughing or wheezing
- Shortness of breath
If you are experiencing symptoms like these, you need to see a physician as soon as you are able. Without treatment, these symptoms can progress and may even become life-threatening.
Acute Heart Failure
Other people can develop congestive heart failure very suddenly with a condition called acute heart failure. People with acute heart failure typically notice the same symptoms as chronic heart failure, but they tend to be more severe. Additionally, acute heart failure can cause you to suffer from heart palpitations.
Whether you suffer from acute or chronic heart failure, this is a serious condition that can lead to issues such as organ failure. If you believe that hypertension caused by YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella contributed to your congestive heart failure, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help with your medical bills.
