Cardiology Questions? Ask a Cardiologist for Answers ASAP.
Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA. I will be answering your query shortly.
I'm sorry to hear that.
Do you have any swelling of feet/legs?
Can you lie straight on the bed without getting short of breath?
Are you gaining weight or is it static?
Do you have any idea about your blood pressure readings?
When was the last time you had a cardiac evaluation/ecg?
Have you ever been evaluated for thyroid disease?
I would like to rule out heart condition and thyroid disease with your symptoms. Fatigue and reduced exercise capacity can be an early symptom of weak heart muscle. I would like you to see a doctor and request them for an ecg, echo and a Chest X ray at least. You're already getting tested for thyroid and that's the right thing to do. It's important to rule out a treatable physical condition first and not assume that it's stress related.
I can understand your nervousness but it's important to evaluate this.
You're most welcome. I hope you stay well.
