Ok, I know you are looking for a definitive answer, but without an EKG/ECG (painless test) and a chest X-ray or echocardiogram, no one can give an answer for sure. Please talk to your mom or dad about this and have them take you to the doctor. The good news is all those tests I mentioned are totally painless and don't involve any needles. Good luck to you!

I can t tell what the sensation is, so I yawn and it usually goes away. Why is this happening and what s going on with me?

but this the third time I was severly affected and the experience was torchous. I live in Bangalore, recently I went to Chennai were I was severely affected and on 2nd June I visited a doctor who gave me medicine and I had to return from the station on 3rd june, since I had dizziness, severe cough but not temp. I did not eat 2 or 3 days then I met my family doctor after a very long period, he advised to meet an asthma specialist and he also suggested that I may have phlum in my lungs etc.

Could you kindly advise what specialist I should meet, I am registered with St Johns Bangalore.
