EFFECTS OF CARDIOMYOPATHY.
As heart muscle thickens, it can limit blood flow, so you end up short on oxygen. That can cause problem like dizziness, fainting, and shortness of breath. Your heart’s rhythm also might get thrown off, and your heart might flutter, pound, or start racing. Your kidneys may react to lower amounts of blood by holding on to more water and salt than usual, and that can lead to swelling in your legs, ankles, feet, and organs.
