Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi, and thank you for coming here with your question.
When you are having trouble breathing then it really needs to be seen immediately by a doctor. Even though you are able to breath you are having symptoms of problems with your breathing.
Is this trouble just that you are feeling like you are not getting enough breath, or is it because you are getting dizzy or having other symptoms along with it?
My main concern is that either you have a problem with your blood not holding on to enough oxygen to fill your body, or that your electrolytes are not in balance.
Can you tell me how old you are? What medical problems do you have? What medications do you take? What is the climate you are in now?
Did they do any blood work at the center?
I think you need to go back right away.
The contraceptive puts you at increased risk for a blood clot in your lungs. That might make you feel breathless.
On contraceptives and abnormal breathing would have me calling an ambulance.
I don't understand why they did that. They didn't do any tests for blood clots, nor did they do any tests to see if there was anything abnormal in your blood.
Also, have you been on any trips lately.
Yes, even though it has been like this for so long.
If there is a clot then it can keep collecting more cells making the clot even bigger.
If you were my sister I'd have you in the emergency department now.
1. A simple blood test can tell many things
2. An x-ray may be appropriate and might find if there is something going on around your lungs, but more importantly if there are any signs of a clot.
Part of the blood testing will be checking for how long it takes for your blood to clot
Please try to get an appointment for today.
Also, if you are having any type of pain at all in your chest, if you are having any increase in shortness of breath, you have no choice but to IMMEDIATELY call for an ambulance.
Just please be careful. Any increasing shortness of breath at all. If you try to exercise (even lifting something) and it continues to make it difficult to breath etc you must go be checked out right away.
I would hope that at the very least the doctors do a blood test and an x-ray.
If those come up negative they may ask you to see a pulmonologist to make sure that there is nothing going on in your lungs (which might be less of an emergency).
Please feel free to contact me with any further questions. Even after you complete the payment (the only way we get paid is if a positive rating is done) you will not have to pay anything extra to continue this conversation.
