Which medicines are you taking?

Hello again,

I was waiting for your reply.
It is possible that there is fluid retention.
Low kidney function can cause it.
This is associated with CHF & shortness of breath.

Other possibilities like anemia, lung infection, clot can also be there.
I would suggest to take an examination by doctor again without delay.
You would need adjustment of medicine after tests.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
