In brief: Dyspnea, Chest pain

55 year old lady with anorexia.
Anorexia is a life threatening condition. What you may think is adult onset asthma could be the serious repercussions of malnutrition. It's not your fault, anorexia affects many people in our society. However, I would highly recommend that you get medical attention immediately, it may save your life.

An in person visit for your asthma is very important while your MD is getting control over your asthma. You will be taught to take daily actions to prevent asthma, and require infrequent use of a rescue inhaler. Your shortness of breath is a serious symptom and oral systemic corticosteroids might be needed along with oxygen while spirometry is done and an inhaled corticosteroid is added.

However there are other serious problems that may be at play and you need to see someone in person please. Good luck.
