From someone whose had LUPUS for 20 years and have just gone through threee years of heart attaks a 9 heart surgeries and am still looking at 2 more.
If you are haing that much of a problem breathingn I would make an appointment with aq CARDIOLOGIST for a stress test or for a test which is new that they came out with about a year ago is they give ya a shot and then ya sit n read a book for an hour in that time the dye that was in that shot works on any and all plaque or clots in your heart and arteries.
Then they take 5 pics or so and EVERY PIECE OF PLAQUE OR CLOTS SHOWS UP BRITE WHITE.
Also if you go further and get a stress test that will show ANY irregular heart beats , potential off beats, and potenital clots that may cause heart attacks or even worse an anneurism.
I would like to know what it was they were looking for, exercise is important but ta your age unless you;re a gaming freak and do nothing buit sit allday....i'm sure it sounds like youwere getting enough movement and cardiac work outs.
I would be on my way to a cardiologist NOW !!!!!
There are prescriptions women take that can cause these problems in young women ...like the pill etc.....
I know when you feel like crap exercise is hard to deal with, other than LUPUS Ihave a myriad of auto immune problmes but my disability started due to a broken backn neck....
I spent a year in a HALO and body brace and basically had to learn to walk again.....yet I have DR telling me to walk and get on the bicycle and push myself
AT 56 I'm not gonna push ANYTHING, I'm lucky to be alive.....but I will say when ya feel like crap THOUGH YOU MAY GET WINDED AND YOUR LEGS MAY HURT ETC.....
BUT IT;S LIKE WHEN YA PUSH YOURSELF....IT;S KIND OF LIKE AFTER DOING A hard days wqork YOUR BEAT AND TIRED AND HUNGRY BUT IN A GOOD WAY...ALSO WHEN YA SWEAT YA GET ALLTHE CRAP OUTOF YOUR SYSTEM AND IT HELP FOR YOUR MES TO BE CIRCULATED SO THEY WORK AND JUST DONLT BUILD UP IN YOUR SYSTEM.
THIS WHOLE THING CAN BE VERY FRUSTRATING..HANG IN THERE HION YOU;RE NOT ALONE
BUT PLEASE CALL A CARDIOLOGIST.
btw BE CAREFULL WITH REFERALLS GIVE TO YOU FROM 1 DOC TO ANOTHER. USUALLY THESE REFERALS ARE NOT BECAUSE THIS GUYS IS toip notch IT;S BECUASE HE AND THE OTHER DOC HAVE AN AGREEMENT THAT THERE DOC WHO DID THE REFERRAL GET 10-15% of the money charged for your visit.
You;re better off doing your own research online about what Doctor to see.
THAT WAS TOLD TO ME BY MY PRIMARY WHO LUCKILY FORME IS A PERSONAL FRIEND.
I'VE NO IDEA WHERE YOU LIVE BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY WAY TO GET TO DEBORAH HOSPITAL DO IT !!!! THEY ARE RATED IN THE TOP 5 IN THE COUNTRY!!!! heart n lung is all they do
