Question: I feel breathless after a short running or even playing any outdoor sports. A couple of days back I felt breathless even when walking or talking to someone and had to take conscious breaths while talking. I had visited a doctor who suggested me an x-ray, ecg and pft test. I have done he tests but haven't not visited him again though. Can you please loo at these tests and advice. I have emailed the reports to ask a doctor.
