I am very short of breath and can't walk more than 100 yards,

Customer Question

I am very short of breath and can't walk more than 100 yards, then my right leg gives way and sometimes I fall. I have no pain anywhere but when this happens I have to sit down for a few minutes till I recover. I have had an Echogram of the heart and stress test but my heart seems to be good. Have you any idea what could be causing my breathlessness and my leg giving way?
