I am almost normal when I am sitting still of laying down, but if I walk for 20-30 feet I begin to get short of breath. If I continue walking, I am panting like I ran a marathon and my lungs really hurt. I have been to specialists as well as my GP and no one knows why. My blood pressure is always low and all cardiac tests come out normal. I cannot do anything I used to. I do my computer and watch TV all day, every day. I try to do things during the day and have to stop because of the shortness of breath. It takes 5-10 minutes to return to normal. It is very frustrating since I used to be so active.
