Doctor:and get yourself examined to find the reason for breathing difficulty
User:hmmm ok
Doctor:it is unusual to develop breathing difficulty all of a sudden
User:yeah ... breathing is what scared me most
Doctor:And a complete physical examination will give us clues to what might be going on
User:ohh ok ok ..
Doctor:it could be just because of the cold weather
Doctor:but we need to be sure about it
User:you mean sort of blood n urine report or something else ?
Doctor:hence, it is recommended to visit a doctor
User:ok ..
Doctor:No, a physical examination is checking for signs in your body by examination
User:I did it last year .. complete body check up ..
