Ever been seen by someone for this shortness of breath or had any tests?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
No it just happened recently
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 14 days ago.

OK. It seems more of an anxiety but because you have never been seen for this before or have had any work up in the past so I would suggest to please be seen once..it can be a GP, a walk in center or an urgent care center.

Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 14 days ago.

Treatment wise I would just recommend some beta blockers at the moment.  They need a prescription from the GP

Customer: replied 14 days ago.

Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 14 days ago.
That's why I'm saying it needs to be examined and have some tests done like ecg and xray ..
