I was in the Rocky Mountains skiing & experienced a shortness of breath & shallow breathing. I attributed it to the altitude. Now, I m back home. I have a pressure or heaviness in my chest & trouble or shortness of breath. I no longer have a cough but my sinuses are stuffed . My cough was severe but never spit up blood. I am 51 years old, great cardiovascular shape, healthy diet and low cholesterol. I am currently taking 75 mg of Cymbalta & 10 mg of Lexapro for primary depression. This is NOT new.

my throat and chest hurt. im having troubles breathing. my tongue is swollen and its tingling. is this an allergic reaction? what should i do?

I ve had trouble breathing for awhile now. I am a 15 year old female and I might have precordial catch syndrome, but I am not 100% sure. I get the occasional stabbing pain in the left side of my chest. It last for a few minutes and it sometimes feels better if I apply pressure. other times, the pain is not intense and it hurts for a longer period of time. another problem I experience is trouble breathing. I find myself taking a deep breath every few minutes. I do this because I feel like it is impossible to get air without taking a deep breath. It almost feels like there is a huge bubble in my chest, keeping me from breathing, and when I take a deep breath, it allows enough air to satisfy me for a few minutes. Then the same problem happens again. This is really annoying, painful and kind of scary. I feels like my chest will suddenly close up, making it impossible to breath. Please help!

Hello Dr, 41 year old, non-smoker, 1-5 units of alcohol a week, active, no other health issues. Family history of heart problems (Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy ), have been checked and do not have it, although have a slight thickening of arterial knuckle which gets monitored. I m getting what feels like pulses or faint flutters from my oesophagus region to the top of my sternum region, these symptoms are infrequent during the day to sometimes non-existent, but at night the symptoms only occur when laid on my back or on my left side (they disappear when I m lying on my right side?) and feel more constant with a heart beat ie pulses at a constant rate. Occasionally have slight breathlessness since this has started 1 week ago. Now I ve had a slight upset stomach (although not constipated I ve not been regular) the last week and the symptoms do seem to be more present when I have heavy feeling in my stomach and then subside once I pass wind. Is the pulses/flutter linked to this and could be a blockage and wind not escaping? Or something else?

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.

Recently I have been experiencing a "racing heart" ulse rate upwards to 111, and general tiredness. Is this something to be concerned about since heart disease runs in my family, including a sibling that died from a heat attack at age 57. My age is 56
