Currently, are your symptoms appearing ONLY during physical activity/exertion or do you also have them when you're at rest?Regards,John

  • I'd suggest a pulmonologist. S/he would likely order an xray (to see why short of breath) and a contrast CT of chest. Good luck.

I'd suggest a Pulmonologist. S/he would likely order a chest xray and contrast CT of chest to figure out why you are short of breath.Good LuckLJ

  • Hello , Sorry to hear about your ongoing problem .You complain of chest pain , left jaw , shoulder , hand pain , shortness of breath especially on exercise and exersion and now even during daily routine activities . Since 3 months you are having these complains . I think you should have an appointment with cardiologist because the symptoms described by you are of anginal pain occuring along with shortness of breath means may be pulmonary venous congestion or left sided heart failure . Moreover you also complain of numbness and coldness of left half of the body which makes it more in the favour of that you might be having some circulation related malfunctioning. Have an appointment asap . Good Luck .

  • Im Having the same symptoms..,Im going to visit the hospital tomorrow..I was researching about it and this one article said tha An ECG may appear normal even in the presence of significant heart disease. Thus, for a full assessment of the heart, other tests may be needed..maybe you should have other tests done too..
