User :   i didn't get you
Doctor :   does the pain increases or decreases when he takes food ?
User :   no no relation with the food
User :   but yeah sometimes a pain appears in upper part of his throat
Doctor :   i see
Doctor :   ok now what i will suggest that he should get an ultrasound done
User :   and with that may b out worry he feels shortness of breath
Doctor :   as both pain in back and stomach might be due to gallstones
Doctor :   so its important to rule that out
User :   GP said its coz of general weakness after jaundice
User :   its in chest sir not in stomach
Doctor :   and how much can he walk before he has to stop for catching his breath ?
Doctor :   see general weakness will not be a reason for the pain
Doctor :   esp chest pain
User :   walking is not a problem he can walk 2 km
Doctor :   his diet is ok ?
User :   but after doing something physical he feels that throat pain followed by shortness of breath
Doctor :   i see well an X ray will be required
Doctor :   to see the pathology in the lungs if any
Doctor :   may i know his age please?
Doctor :   does he smokes or consume alcohol ?
User :   no he doesn't consume alcohol n never smoke
User :   he's 28 years old
Doctor :   ok
User :   the main worry is of throat pain and shortness of breath
Doctor :   well he has to undergo an X RAY
Doctor :   that is must
User :   ok
Doctor :   it will tell us the cause and then it can be treated accordingly
Doctor :   he is of a very young age so i dont think there will be anything serious
User :   but this happens may be once a week or in 10 days
Doctor :   it can be just a underline infection
Doctor :   which can be treated with just regular antibiotics
Doctor :   once the X RAY are done
Doctor :   you can always discuss the reports with me
User :   ok sir
User :   what shall i say to the x ray person
User :   simply x ray of the chest or any medical term
Doctor :   yes that will be enough
User :   ok sir
