JA: The Cardiologist can help. Just a couple quick questions before I transfer you. Can you tell me about all the symptoms you've experienced (e.g. shortness of breath, heart palpitations, minor physical effort making you feel tired)?
Customer: Yes to the above. Have been examined by a respiratory docterr and all life functions fine.. Presently prescribed Ventolin at 120 level but not having a great success. Previously had shingles - can that affect breathing and body trembleing?
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?

Thanks for the details

This is unlikely to be related to shingles

Since you have been examined by respiratory physician and all the tests are fine so it is unlikely to be anything serious

It can be a functional problem related to stress or anxiety

Please do let me know if you have any other question

OK for now. I may revert if shortage of breath persists.
