Hi Amarjot,



Thank you for posting your query.



We need to examine you in detail to come to a final conclusion regarding your diagnosis. However, symptoms could be related to ischemia of brain (less blood flow to the left side of brain), or nerve compression in the cervical spinal cord.

Please also get your hemoglobin and heart checked, in view of breathlessness on exertion.

Please get back if you require any additional information.



Best wishes,
