Question: I recently experienced an unusual breathlessness while deplaning and walking to my flights in an airport. I had to stop and rest and couildn't hear except for the loud pounding of my heart in my ears. My heart was beating fast and hard and I couldn't talk or close my mouth even. I sort of erped my dinner and was sweating. Should I get checked or could it be an anxiety attack? I am 74 in avg health.

Detailed Answer:

Welcome on -Ask a Doctor. service!

After passing carefully through your recent concern, I would recommend performing a medical check-up including a careful physical exam coupled with additional tests (complete blood count, resting ECG, cardiac ultrasound, chest X ray study).

Only after excluding any serious cardio-pulmonary disorder, you may discuss with your doctor on the possibility of reviewing your neurological therapy.

Hope to have been helpful to you!

Kind regards,
