I doubt this is asthma related. You can have exercise-induced asthma
, but I'm sure you've tried using albuterol
to counter it, and I'm guessing it only has a minor impact, if any (probably associated with speeding up your heart, not clearing the lungs).
If you have to see your family doctor first for a referral, do that. But insist on seeing a cardiologist ASAP! The MVP
may be causing further issues, such as arrhythmia
, an inflamation of the heart lining, or the prolapse may be worsening, itself. You need to get a full work-up if you are having problems running more than 6 meters!
