Customer Question

I have severe breathing difficulties which seem to be getting worse by the minute. Inhalers don't seem to make any difference. I had by thyroid taken out many years ago and take thyroxine and am tested regularly. Apparently I have mild airways obstructive disease and mild pulmonary hypertension so I have seen lung and heart specialist who says my heart is fine.
It has been suggested by osteopath that I should see an encrinologist. Would that be a good idea?
