THanks for the query
Yes they are signs of congestive cardiac failure to be more accurate a left heart failure.
But in your morbidities u have not mentioned hypertension, so if u are not a hypertensive, that too a long standing one why are u suspecting a CHF?? PLease get a Pro BNP done along with Ches x ray. Your BP will be on the lower side if u r having CHF

Have a healthy life
