Possible lung dz: These symptoms can be lung related if indeed heart tests are normal. The heart tests needed are a stress test and ECHO. Lung tests would be a X ray, lung function tests to rule out asthma, COPD or other primary lung disease. Also need to rule out other problems such as anemia or other systemic diseases. Suggest PCP and pulmonary consultations to start

Need ABG....: You need to get an arterial blood gas test (ABG) to see what your oxygen level is. There are many factors that could render a pulse ox test inaccurate. In order to get an accurate measure of your oxygen level, and to see if the pulse ox test is accurate or not, have your doctor order an ABG. The test can be done as an outpatient. Good luck!!

Mgt: You should be evaluated right away by a Cardiologist. Your symptoms may be related to a cardiac condition. I would advise having your BP checked on both sides, standing and lying down. Your pulse oximetry will be checked at the same time. Your symptoms may be related to a number of conditions, but cardiac conditions must be ruled out.

What is a natural home remedy for toe-nail fungus?

What is a natural home remedy for toe-nail fungus?

Maybe?: The reason you hear so many different treatments for toenail fungus is because there is no perfect, sure-fire treatment that works 100% of the time. I've seen vaporub work, as well as other natural oil remedies, but rarely. You can also try laser therapy, antifungal creams, paints, or even oral medications if your doctor deems you healthy enough to take them.
