Welcome to Just Answer.
How is cough?
Do you feel shortness of breath?
not productive and sounds deep
a little short of breath
Does the pain occur only on taking breath?
no sometimes it is when I am moving around also
Pain on taking breath can come from costochondritis, inflammation of lungs, pleura.
Pain on movement can come from costochondritis.
It can come from heart issues like angina too.
You need to inform doctor about your symptom now. If you do not get any response, I would suggest to go to ER.
I had an EKG and extensive blood work and my Dr felt like it was my copd I felt like he was not listing to me he told me to rest
When did you have the EKG?
about a week and a half ago at the ER
Did you have chest pain during taking the EKG?
no, it was due to high axiety,
I was having a real bad stress headache
When you are having pain in central part of chest, I would suggest to have a repeat EKG.
that was what I thought but my DR said because it only lasted about 2 minutes it was probably due to gas
Angina can last a few minutes too.
over the past year I have had several EKGs and blood work all have been normal so this is why he said this
It can be gas but it is better to rule out any heart issue.
can an EKG pick up Angina
If it is taken during the pain, then EKG can show changes. Otherwise, you need to take stress tests.
okay thank you
