thanks for this question
have you had any tests done?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No blood or skin tests that i can recall.

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
I don't think these two things are related Roy but anything is possible
The shortness of breath is the most concerning thing to me right now. That could indicate anything from lung disease to heart problems to a blood clot
This should be investigated RIGHT away by your primary care doctor.
