Out Of Breaths When Going Up The Stairs
I was born was a heart murmur and was revived 3 times. I keep running out of breath when I go up&down stairs or run. I'm 19 now? What is causing this?
Is it normal after laying around all day to feel a little out of breath when going up and down the stairs? I don't experience it when walking around
I suspect normal: The real test is how you breathe with exercise. If you're fine walking around this is probably nothing specific. You could always check with your physician and get a cardiac check up if necessary ...Read more

I'm short of breath just from going up the stairs, ecg, d dimer, and chest x ray all come back normal! Could it be a blood clot still or could it be due to changing my pill?
Need more tests: The three tests you describe are by no means a complete enough work-up based on the severity of your symptoms. You need to rule out both a cardiac cause with a BNP level and an ECHOCARDIOGRAM, as well as a pulmonary embolus with a "V/Q" scan or a CT pulmonary angiogram. If your symptoms are indeed sudden in onset and this severe, I would go to an emergency department and get tested there. ...Read more

I have POTS and Lupus how come I can now run 2 miles on a jog but I still get short of breath going up flights of stairs?
It's your POTS: Your ability to run 2 miles suggests that SLE is not affecting your heart or lungs. POTS often presents with shortness of breath &/or palpitations, more common at the beginning of exercise. You require a more lengthly warm-up, hard to provide when going up the stairs. If this symptom is excessively bothersome, you may benefit from low to moderate dose beta blocker such as metoprolol or nadolol ...Read more
I have been, burping, yawning, and farting even going out of breath if I go up 10 stairs. Could you please tell me what these symptoms are?
To vague: These symptoms are to vague to be helpful, they are consistent either with being part of the human race or some advanced malignancy. But at 18yo and short of breath going up 10 stairs I would vote for deconditioning, eating poorly and not getting enough rest> if this persist after addressing some of these things go see your provider. ...Read more

Heart and lungs supposedly check out fine except for tachycardia. Anytime I go up stairs or little activity get short of breath and heart pounds why?
Out of shape:
Most common reason for shortness of breath (if you do not smoke) is being out of shape. Your heart and lungs already checked ok and I assume you do not have anemia, hyperthyroidism or other illnesses.
You should start an exercise program and train regularly to become physically fit. ...Read more
Fell on stairs 2 weeks ago. Bruised tailbone and hurt my ribs. Sometimes it's hard to breath because my ribs ache. Should I go to doc or is it okay?
Ok: This sounds ok. A fall such as yours could cause irritation and bruising to the areas you mention. IF you have a small fracture of the ribcage, this is not something that can be casted or treated otherwise medically, so I recommend you just relax and not overexert yourself within the next four weeks. You should notice slow improvement of symptoms over the next few weeks. ...Read more

After going up stairs I am short of breath. I have allergies and a history on the family of mitral valve prolapse. Any reason why this would happen?
Yes: MVP if severe enough can impact your circulatory function and thus the shortness of breath. On the other hand, if you have hay fever, you do have a higher risk of having asthma without the usual symptoms such as coughing and wheezing. You need to get a lung function test to check out your lungs. If normal, then a cardiovascular evaluation may be needed. Either way, you need to talk to your doctor ...Read more
Ever since I had a coronary heart vessel stent put in Feb '14 I have had notable shortness of breath when walking, going up stairs, singing. Related??
You need an evaluation by your Cardiologist sooner than later. Make an appointment today. If symptoms are increasing in intensity go to the nearest ER.
It may be as simple as a medication adjustment.
It may be as serious as a stent thrombosis or other complications. I noticed that you did not mention any antiplatelet medications or other heart medications.
