Need lung function: At your age, lung function impairment would be a more likely cause than cardiovascular disease unless you have many risk factors for cv disease. Suggest that you get an exercise tolerance test if the basic lung function test is normal to find out. Anxiety with hyperventilation is yet another cause for sob under stress. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Occasionally: Kawasaki disease can lead to most commonly a specific rash, fever, swollen lymph nodes, and specific changes to the lips/tongue and hands/feet. However, there are specific changes that can occur in the heart. Occasionally this may lead to a murmur, which is a specific sound of blood flowing through the heart. Most often, though, kawasaki disease causes heart inflammation without a murmur. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Continuum: Both are a result of inadequate blood supply to the heart muscle. Acute coronary syndrome means that the imbalance is sufficient to cause symptoms that prompt aggressive intervention, but may not result in permanent heart damage; a myocardial infarction implies that overt heart damage has occurred, hence positive markers of tissue damage. ...Read more

Uncertain significan: Muscular bridge is when a coronary artery lies beneath the heart muscle.So the artery is squeezed during each cardiac contraction and therefore interrupts blood flow. It may or may not cause chest pain in patients with normal coronaries. Microvascular dysfunction is when the small capillaries in the heart fail to respond or adopt to a vasodilatory stimulus often suspected in women normal arteries ...Read more
Continuum: Angina can be quite severe and respond to rest, oxygen, nitroglycerin. And fully recover with no muscle death. The pain fibers are the same source. Some myocardial infarction can be asymptomatic all the way to the worst, ominous, pain ever! there is heart muscle death as the defining entity may need surgery or intervention. ...Read more
