My father has been having a problem for more than three years now. It started with shortness of breath during exertion and slowly grew into shortness of breath, dizziness and chest pains. The other day he ended up in the emergency room for heart attack like symptoms but did NOT have a heart attack. Doctors say his heart is fine. Pulminary is fine. Thyroid is fine. Liver and Kidneys are fine. They say everything is fine, but something is obviously wrong. Does anyone have any idea what might be going on here?

  • My grandfather had symptoms like that and it actually turned out he was having panic attacks. I know this seems strange, especially if there is nothing to panic about. However, he was still doing this. To be on the safe side ask a cardiologist to do a stress test or a heart cath.
