Does dizziness and shortness of breath mean I have heart disease? I am 57 and have been getting dizzy spells, shortness of breath when I climb stairs or walk for very long, and sometimes my heart feel like it is pounding or racing. I'm otherwise healthy.

It doesn't mean you have heart disease there can be many factors. This is a very general and common question and the only way to know if you have heart disease is to be evaluated by a cardiologist.

Shortness of breath tight discomfort left side of chest and back. Now feel winded anytime I walk or anything like that?

Chest pain

Open-uri20120811-22708-y35r8c
Symptoms of CP with shortwindedness On walking should be thoroughly evaluated. It is unlikely to have coronary artery disease in a 29 year old, other conditions like congestive heart failure needs to be ruled out. Or it may very well be something less sinister like musculoskeletal pain. Get checked.

at 21 you should not have these symptoms unless you are very out of shape. If this is a new symptom you need to be evaluated. Tell this story to your doctor. You may need a stress test, you definately need to be examined.
