BP 119/91 pulse rate 131. Symptoms are a fuzzy/cloudy headed feeling, sweating, & hard time getting a deep breath. ER visit or wait for reg dr tomorrow? This is 2nd day of this.

Hello I'm Dr Chip

Can you please tell me about your breathing problem?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Having difficulty taking deep breath. Not necessarily a shortness of breath, but hard to take deep breath.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 1 year ago

Any cough or chest pain?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Just feel like heart is racing
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 1 year ago

OK

At this point I think you need the ER

While I can't be sure, from what you've told me you may either be having a heart attack or a pulmonary embolism--a clot in a lung vein

I'm concerned about this--so I think it's definitely an emergency situation

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
