Should I consult the doctor for breathlessness and extreme fatigue?

Wondering if I should see my family doctor. Increase in being breathless recently, and extreme fatigue. Sleeping 10-12 hours a night in last week. Dragging through work. I have GERD with as associated cough when drinking lots of caffeine but the cough has changed.

Hello,

Consult a physician and get evaluated.
An ECG and echo test is required to rule out possible cardiac causes.
You can also go for a chest X-ray to look for any lung problems.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician
