A Healthtap consultation is available. The symptoms are concerning and respiratory and cardiac conditions should be ruled out A work up may include imaging, lung function testing and markers of inflammation. A cardiac evaluation is recommended. Until cleared medically, it may be best to avoid strenuous activity.
