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.

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!

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.

I am a 44 year old male with a family history of hyperlipidemia and heart disease. My father had a AMI at age 50 and expired. His father expired at age 51 with an AMi. Both were sudden death. I had a Cardiac CTA yesterday which revealed a calcium score of 252. The report revealed a 70-80% blockage to the middle of the LAD with about 50% occlusion on both of the ends. Seeing a cardiologist tomorrow. What do you think the treatment will be for this?

I recently had an ECG after an abnormal EKG. The ECG showed vent. rate 108bpm Sinus tachycardia, PR interval 158 ms, possible left atrial enlargement, QRS duration 88 ms , nonspecific ST abnormality, QT/QTc 368/493 ms, abnormal ECG, P-R-T axes 70 48 58 and prolonged QT. The cardiologist didn t seem very concerned and felt the abnormality was because of the medication I was taking - remeron for sleeping; I suffer from chronic insomnia. I have been on this medication for over two years and have never had any side effects or problems with it. In the past three-four months, however, I have been experiencing chest pains, some severe which is why I went to my physician to get the first EKG which showed a fast heart beat and was referred to the cardiologist for an ECG, EKG and a stress test. I was only on the treadmill for maybe 4 1/3 minutes before I experienced SOB and chest pains. They repeated the ECG and I was told it was abnormal and to discuss my medications with my psychiatrist and that I had nothing to worry about. When I see abnormal ECG, EKG and am taking nitro tablets with a family history of heart disease (father COPD, CHF and angioplasty; grandfather died of a heart attack), I have a tendency not to believe the doctor. I have not even been contacted by my physician for a follow-up visit. Should I be concerned. Cancer also runs in my family; my father died of colon, liver CA and I am breast cancer survivor. I d appreciate your comments. Should I seek another opinion? Thanks, Mary Kopco YYYY@YYYY I am a 61 y.o. white female, 137 lbs w/ hx of cancer (bilateral mastectomy and hysterectomy for CA of uterus), osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, high cholesterol (328), allergic to any statin drugs, being treated with Zetia 10 mg 1 x/day. Presently taking nitro tabs for chest pain, oxybutityn for overactive bladder, clonazepam 1mg 3x/day for anxiety and depression. I look forward to your response. Thank you.
