See your doctor!: Left sided chest pain that radiates to the shoulder and is associated with fatigue and shortness of breath is very concerning for a heart or lung problem. This should be evaluated very soon by your doctor with physical exam, ekg, chest x-ray and blood tests. This constellation of symptoms should prompt a visit to the emergency room.

When I get shortness of breath, fatigue and chest pain right in the middle, 2 mg of ativan (lorazepam) makes it go away in an hour or less, is itheart or anxiety?

Anxiety.: It can be extremely difficult and possibly consequential distinguishing between chest pain from a cardiac etiology versus chest pain from anxiety.

While taking Ativan (lorazepam) could potentially make symptoms from heart pathology improve this is also less likely than improving anxiety. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with myocardial bridge of lad after going to doctors suffering from shortness of breath chest pain and fatigue. I'm on beta blockers which have only helped a little. When is surgery the best option? It is seriously affecting my job I

Talk To The Experts: After medical treatment has failed (that is, your symptoms aren't improved well enough for you to have a decent quality of life and/or there are signs that something bad might happen at any time) then it's time to consider surgery to remove that little "bridge" of tissue. Sounds like you're not doing so well, so discuss this with your doctor (s). Taking action will minimize worry. Worry doesn't help ...Read more

My doctor says I may have mitral valve prolapse. However there's a ten month wait for an ethnocardiogram, my symptoms are persisting and sometimes worsening, chest pain, rapid heart beat, shortness of breath post excercise, fatigue, what should I do?

My doctor says I may have mitral valve prolapse. However there's a ten month wait for an ethnocardiogram, my symptoms are persisting and sometimes worsening, chest pain, rapid heart beat, shortness of breath post excercise, fatigue, what should I do?

Nothing: If you haven't had the echo, then the diagnosis of mvp has not been established. Even if you do have it, mvp does not cause these symptoms. Doctors blame all kinds of things on mvp but they are not related. There is no treatment required for mvp and none that is helpful. If the wait for an echo is that long then you are in the wrong health system. ...Read more

Can shortness of breath, fatigue, and chest pains be related to cancer, or any other disease? As well as dry hands, and an abnormal appetite.

Well...: Those are very vague symptoms, you know. Could be caused by cancer but also by lots of other conditions. If it's about you, I suggest you visit a physician to get a good examination. At your age, cancer would not be in the top of my differential diagnosis. ...Read more

I'm 17 & have chest pains, shortness of breath, rapid heart beat from simple tasks, extreme dizziness and fatigue. EKG was normal. Is this normal?

Multiple symptoms: Of course not. How could all these symptoms in a 17 year old be "normal"? You need a complete physical exam including serology and hormone levels as well as pregnancy test and mental health eval for anxiety and depression. If you take drugs (MJ) or smoke, drink alcohol or are obese or inactive, you will be negatively effected and may develop symptoms as you've described. ...Read more

What is my next move? Shall I take her to a cardiologist for a second opinion? My 14 yr old daughter who has had asthma has been suffering from heart palpitations shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pains and fatigued for weeks. She has been off the as

Yes: Palpitations are often nothing but teen years are when we see a spike in the diagnosis of svt. Her asthma medicines will speed her heart rate anyway which might explain all, but they could help trigger svt. A 24 holter monitor would really help if she is having palpitations on a daily basis. Yes see a pediatric cardiologist. ...Read more
