Ask Cardiology: Lam may not be the one causing you to have dyspnea, but your atrial fibrillation. Please, ask your cardiologist to see if your heart rate increases too high when you are exercising. Perhaps, your medications for heart rate control may need to be adjusted. If the heart is not causing the problems, then your pulmonologist may need to reassess your oxygenation and lung functions. This frustrates!
