I : I don't know what your diagnosis is. Don't know if there is a history of heavy tobacco or alcohol use or your age. However, based on the fact that you are having difficulty breathing with unexplained weight loss it would be prudent not to delay seeing your doctor for a thorough evaluation of your symptoms. Take care.
