Hi, For The Last One Week, I Feel It Is
For the last one week, I feel it is hard to breath, no fever, just the feeling of hard to breath, I went to Cardiologist who did ECG, X Ray and blood test to come up that my results are ok and my feeling is due to feeling stressed but I still have the same feeling, it is not continuous it comes and goes. Please advice what can I do
I would recommend performing some tests:
Welcome to Ask a Doctor service!
I passed carefully through your question and would explain that shortness of breath in diabetic patients could also be indicative of coronary artery disease.
For this reason, I would recommend performing an ECG cardiac stress test or cardiac stress echo in order to exclude this possibility.
Other tests to consider would be:
- a cardiac ultrasound in order to examine your heart function and structure
- pulmonary function tests
- complete blood count for anemia
- D - Dimmer plasma levels for possible pulmonary embolism.
Further tests ( pulmonary angio CT scan) may be needed in case of abnormal D dimmer levels.
You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.
I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need!
Dr.Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
