Thanks for writing to us.
Your CXR is normal or NRA-No radiological abnormality seen in roentgenogram.
The shortness of breath
is due to Hyperventillation Syndrome which is an accompaniment of Anxiety Neurosis.
Loss of Appetite with loss of weight are also a sequelae of Anxiety Neurosis.
Do you have any anterior neck bulge/protruding eyeballs? Do you have constant sweating?
In your history you have not actually mentioned your most important Vital Parameters- Pulse Rate//Resting Pulse Rate., Blood Pressure and Respiratory Rate
. These are very important to differentiate between Anxiety and Hyperthyroidism
.In addition to CXR, you should have undergone Thyroid Function Tests
/baseline blood and Urine Tests and a resting ECG in 12 leads.
If all the above are Normal, your Anxiety Neurosis will be confirmed., Pls take a consultation with Psychiatryst for "Talk Therapy" or Psychotherapy to analyse the root cause of anxiety and then "Medicine Therapy" or Pharmacotherapy
as decided by your Psychiatryst.
Avoid hot //spicy//oily// food. Take over the counter antacids. Walk for 15 mins after food. These will help to regulate Hyperacidity which may cause above type of pain in Acid Peptic Disorder(APD).
Wishing you a speedy recovery.,
