I have had all the heart, lung and breathing tests and no one seems to know what is wrong (ECG, echocardiogram, Nuc Med Stress Test, breathing test, CT chest, abd, pelvis, chest x ray, MRI brain, blood work up, etc.). I was reading someone elses symtoms of trouble breathing and it is the best description you could have for it, "on top of all that i have developed some kind of breathing problem. it started a couple months ago. its as if i can't get enough air. like i can't get the perfect breath. and i yawn a lot but can never finish them. this has been on and off."
My breathing problems start back in Jan 2007 skiing one day. I am a very good skier and can ski most of the day and just be somewhat fatigue but beginning that day (first ski day of that year) I went down some relatively easy slopes just cruising and after only 2 runs I was so winded halfway down the second run I almost passed out because I just could not catch my breath.
Since then I have been to ER twice with my trouble breathing feeling lightheaded that I thought I was going to pass out and felt like I was going to die (I'm really not sure what that would feel like but I did think it could be over).
I do not have any pre existing conditions. At the time of this writing I feel lightheaded and somewhat fatigued from the lightheadedness.
I have been to a pumonologist, cardiologist, and my GP and I natural medicine MD and all just scratch their heads. It lasts 3 - 5 days and I have not had a severe bought like the 2 that sent me to ER since April 2008 but just ones like I am experiencing now a little more than just annoying off and on anywhere from 3 - 10 weeks apart.
If someone know if this is a rare disease or any disease I would greatly appreciate a direction.
Thank you in advance!
