Hello. I'm The Good Dr., licensed and practicing physician. Excellent service is my goal.

how can I help?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My partner is 38 and has been having symptoms for approx 2 yrs which have progressed he has trouble breathing, as soon as he wakes he starts coughing, nearly always out of breath even putting on socks disables him,and it's only getting worse.

has he had any tests?

heart or lung tests?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No he's not registered with local gp, but the symptoms are progressing into other areas

okay he really needs to have heart and lung tests first

that is the first step

go to emergency if you have to

Can you give any ideas he really can't breathe the majority of the time guaranteed every day all day and night, it eases slightly when he coughs up clear mucus but not for long, he knows he's not well but is struggling doing something about it

it could be something like COPD

heart failure

He's not sleeping,loss of appetite and I think it's too constant for asthma,my cousin has had asthma all his life and the attacks he has are different whereas my hubby is constantly like it with severe bursts,he has been getting pains in left arm and chest and what he describes as a strap like feel across his chest

cardiac issues


all possible
