It’ll be best to speak with your doctor performing tests, which ones you should have done. An EKG will give you a look at the electrical conduction in heart. An echocardiogram will actually show heart pumping, and stress test will show if there are changes with excercise. P.FT.s are good to give you info on lung function, and will be even better if you have old studies to compare. Discuss first
