Hello,
Left-sided heart failure is the most common type of heart failure. The left ventricle on the lower left side of the heart is the main pumping chamber. When it fails, oxygen-rich blood is not pumped to the rest of the body; instead, it can back up into the left atrium and into the lungs, where it builds up. Right-sided heart failure usually happens as a result of left-sided heart failure. It can effect other vital organs of the body. So both sided heart failure are dangerous.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
