chest tightness, fatigue, unwell, feverish, tired, have 2 cats.

for 2 months now I have had chest tightness which feels more like a pressure or heaviness accompanied by fatigue and general feeling of being unwell. However some days I feel more or less normal and then I have periods of feeling unwell with these symptoms that can last for just a couple or hours or a couple of days. I initially thought it was a recurrance of asthma symptoms which I haven t had for many years, but we got 2 cats in January. But it doesn t feel like wheeziness and the asthma medication doesn t make any difference. Some days I feel a bit feverish and very tired. This is now starting to impact on my work and personal life and wondered if anyone could suggest a cause and or solution, thank you,

Hello Louise,

Thank you for visiting

In regards to your inquiry about your chest tightness, fatigue, and general feeling of unwellness; this could be multifactoral. You have a history of asthma that this could represent. However, you state that you are not helped with your asthma medication and you don't feel "wheezy".

Another explanation could be cardiac in nature. Louise, women have atypical cardiac pain which means their symptoms are different from men's symptoms. Notably, women may just feel overly tired and generally feel unwell.

You haven't mentioned a visit to your family physician. I urge you to see your family doctor at your earliest convenience. I believe you need a cardiac workup.

Be well,
Dr. Kimberly
