JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.
Customer: Three times in the last year I have had a strenuous episode of physical activity followed by tightness in the chest, difficulty breathing at a HIGH rate when returning to exercise. About 4 days after I have experienced a sensation of coldness through my chest and into my left shoulder and upper arm. I have had other episodes scattered in between where I have exercised really hard and felt fine.
JA: Have you ever dealt with this before? Are you having any shortness of breath?
Customer: No shortness of breath. Never had any problems before. Only has happened with high end exercising where I really pushed myself hard.
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should be aware of?
Customer: I don't smoke or drink and I weight 180lbs and I am 5'10"
