Dry coughes with metallic taste. I also have trouble with breathlessness and heart pounding hard. Is this something to see the doctor for?

Absolutely! Breathing is non-negotiable, so that in itself warrants a visit. A metallic taste can be a reflection of blood - either from your stomach or your lungs. If invisible blood loss has made you anemic, you could have a low red cell count - and your heart could be beating faster to compensate. (your body needs a certain level of oxygen to function.) do get checked out for this. Good luck. Lgromkomd.

Heart pounding. To really know what your heart rhythm is, you will have an EKG which is of value if your symptoms occured during the 10 seconds that the EKG records. The best test is the wearing of a Holter Monitor for 24-48 hours with you're writing down any symptoms and when they occurred. This will determine if any cardiac rhythm abnormality actually occurs during your symptoms. If not, anxiety may be a cause. Read more...

Doctor gives cardiac stress test to everyone of his patients. Don't know what he's looking for. What's a less demanding heart pounding type test/scan?

Stress test. Why don't you discuss with the doc why he thinks you need a/the test and what decisions the test results will provide for. If you don't like the answer or if it isn't forthcoming, you might look for someone who will communicate with you.
