Hi I would greatly appreciate any input on my case.
My case outlined:
I was sick with the flu (I assume) for about 2 weeks during Christmas (fever, bad cough, runny nose).
I went to the Domican Republic at the end of January, during my week stay there I began feeling short of breath very easily (on exertion). This has continued since my trip to the DR. I have seen a respiratologist and a cardiologist since and they both say there are no causes that they can find for my symtpoms. My GP has ran so many tests (inc. blood tests, multiple chest xrays, ekg, ct scan, adrenaline tests etc) and there seems to be nothing wrong. The other day my doc. indicated my RF level was a bit high and now I am being tested for viruses (again) - lyme disease, tb, cytomegalovirus.
In February I ended up in the hospital because I was very short of breath and I was put on predisone. The doc there said I had a bronchial spasm. While I was there the hospital tested me for virus's and they all came back negative.
During a stress test, My heart rate went to 200 within about 4 minutes (and I was just walking on an incline).
I am easily tired and i get dizzy when I stand for about 10 minutes so I have to lean or sit down.
I was always at the gym and active before this happened. Now I still do a lot, I began going grocery shopping again and I clean and I work and I walk the dog so I am getting back into my regular routine BUT I am still very tired and short of breath very easily. Every time I get short of breath I notice my heart rate is very quick (about 150 - 200).
Thanks for taking the time to read this and I appreciate any comments.
