The shortness of breath could very well be due to a condition called exercised induced asthma. This often times causes chest pain after any type of exercise or stress. The dizziness may be due to a decrease in blood pressure upon rising from a lying position. I would suggest trying to get him to a pulmonary specialist. Just curious, why no insurance now?

Hi there, my son is having cough and wheezing. This has been always whenever he gets cough. He is 1.8 yrs. earlier he was given Asthalin and it helps his breathing till his cough subsides but this time when I go to a new doctor, he just started Refzil O 250mg. Should I wait for some more time to let the Refzil O medicine take effect or can I add Asthalin to the course to help his breathing easy?

Ok here are my symptoms, starting about a year ago, some have just occurred. Some have just gotten worse. - Extreme fatigue - Very short of breath, all the time. - Muscle and Joint pain, mostly in the hips, back, and wrist. Sometimes it feels like I lose control of the muscles in my legs and hips and it feels like I can t walk properly. - A hugging feeling around my ribs, makes it so I can t stand up straight. - I wake up with a tight and sore chest, feels like I ve been running all night. - Left side of chest is swollen and hurts, right side is starting to swell and become painful when I push on it. - I get pain going down from the left side of my butt down the back of my thigh, it s extremely sensitive to light touch. - I bruise extremely easy now too, as well as I get little perfectly round bruises all over my legs.

i was in a car accident like 2 months ago, broke a few bones, had surgery(hip and femur)a month later i began feeling left chest pains, left arm pains...typical heart attack symptoms in other words. last night was the 5th time i went to the e.r. thanks to this pains and again they found nothing wrong with me or my heart so i guess the ekg and mri were all good. the pain is still there on a daily basis my parents refuse to take me to the hospital they think i m insane. my questions are can my heart be bruised or enlarged?or that would have been ruled out with the ekg and mri?they said its not my lungs but the pain is on left back also, could it be only muscle pain?i don t have insurance and all this medical assistance is pretty expensive. if anyone could please get me on the right direction i would greatly appreciate it, this pain is so stressing it feels like a tickle on my lung or heart and i m scared if overlooked it will kill me. by the way i m a 19 yr old grl and nobody in my family has any kind of medical problems....
