Thank you for your supportive message, @cognac.
I'm so sorry to hear about your struggles. I was doing some research online, and came across this information from Mayo Clinic, about pulmonary hypertension – a condition that "is hard to diagnose because it's not often detected in a routine physical exam. Even when the condition is more advanced, its signs and symptoms are similar to those of other heart and lung conditions." https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pulmonary-hypertension/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20350702
Have you asked your cardiologist to rule out pulmonary hypertension or conditions related to it?
Thank you for the very informative answer @kanaazpereira. I do have hypertension but never knew there was such a thing as pulmonary hypertension. I will call my pulmonologist this morning and check into that. Thank you so very much.
Bored, I feel you. I've been having horrible trouble breathing. The last time in the hospital, my cardiologist said he was going to change my meds around. I went to the pulmonary doctor again and at the end of climbing stairs, I couldn't breathe to save my life, my pulse was over 122 but my oxygen saturation was still 98%. She just shook her head and told me she has no idea what is wrong. I have had thirty-five heart caths that have resulted in thirteen stents, 3 angioplasty's and a pacemaker and I still can't breath. I sent a letter off to my cardiologist today telling him I've given up. I have no idea where to turn now.
