I am a 46 year old male who is becoming increasingly frustrated with numerous symptoms. I have always kept myself in great shape and went to the gym daily or at least 5 days a week. I started about 7 years ago noticing that I became very short of breath with very little exertion. Diagnosed with unknown cause COPD, not a smoker and no history. I then started sweating profusely, I am talking walking up a flight of stairs and I was soaking wet and now am panting for air. My latest thing is I have noticed my lifts at the gym declining at a dramatic rate. I know I am getting old, but I can't lift a quarter of the weight I did 3 years ago. Now to top this off, I have found I have an enlarged prostate. I have gone the cardiac stress tests, echocardiograms, CT scans, and numerous blood tests. My blood levels are all fine. Any ideas here? desperate and frustrated.

  • I just want to find out what is wrong with me, my doctor keeps telling me I am getting old. I know that people age, but I am only 26 years old and seem to be getting new symptoms all the time. My breathing has gotten worse even after using spiriva inhalers for a year. My muscle weakness and fatigue seems to be getting worse, I am having trouble remembering how to spell simple words at times and now I become severely depressed with the whole thing.
