Hello.

Thanks for writing to us.

Having recurrent chest pains with occasional shortness of breath with occasional nausea definitely needs to be investigated thoroughly. I encourage you to consult your cardiologist to undergo investigations like ECG in all leads, echocardiography, Stress ECG, troponin-t, etc.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Regards,

Dr. Praveen Tayal

I am a 61 year old female. I am having sharp pain between my shoulder blades, and am short of breath with a small amount of excretion. I have had very bad stressful surgeries in the past. My life at this time is full of added stress. My mother passed away while having bypass surgery (heart) I had aorta bifem surgery and have stents to help circulation in my legs, and a few months ago I had surgery for a twisted bowel and ruptured hernia. I am scared to the point of panic and depression. Could it possibly be something less serious, then heart?)

I have had breathing problems come up in the past month & 1/2 when doing much walking & small things. I have shortness of breath where I have to breath through my mouth to get enough air. I went to a heart Dr. & he said all sounds good then he had me go to a lung Dr. that now wants to have me do a sleep test. I only had about 5 of the sleep questions in minimal & that s only because I have a bad hip that wakes me up at night. I told her this but she still wants the sleep study. I want a second opinion, am I wrong ?

I had a heart attack a few months back and had an echogram taken which measures your valves and muscles and other parts of your heart. The results I received was that my heart is funcitoning at 25 percent at this time and my muscles are dead. I had 36 sessions of cardiac rehab also and if I walk a short distance I get shortness of breath also. Can I live a normal life with my heart at 25 percent and am I a high risk of living a short life. Thank you
