    Severe symptoms would be limiting your quality of life and health and interfering in your ability to live your life as a normal person or severe resulting in negative measureable outcomes.

    Are you asking for specific symptoms of severity; there can be many different ones and different for each individual.


    ie: severe could be if a person has SOB then..severe: very SOB while moving about home quarters... mild: minimal SOB while moving about home quarters.. The mild SOB could be a person has CHF and are not at their worst that day and only minimally showing symptoms that day. IF a person has a known heart condition then these would be one comparison symptom.

        So if you are a little uncomfortable for a short time that would be mild and if very uncomfortable , anxious, very SOB, some gasping, moderately elevated heart rate, then this would be severe. Same with the activity. Anywhere in between would be moderate.

        How I measure it for me.... now my recovery from these symptoms are much faster and the discomfort passes in about 5-10 minutes. Before surgery any activity including eating a large meal, required a great deal of rest to recover and about 3 days to feel better after energy expenditure like going to the grocery store. I lived mostly like a hobbit closed up and snacking litely
