How are the doctor visits and how much? Shortness of breath.

Customer Question
Hello. How long are...

Hello. How long are the doctor visits and how much?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the symptoms you're experiencing (e.g. loss of appetite, fever, rash)?

Shortness of breath. No improvement with inhalers or steroids. Now it's causing numbness and tingling to my upper body like I'm hyperventilating despite my breathing exercises. No anxiety. Chronic autoimmune disorder.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

Can't seem to put it together. Happens randomly and often.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Gastroparesis, GERD, Hashimotos thyroiditis, adrenal issues. Asthma

If your shortness of breath has not improved with inhalers and steroids you need an evaluation for a pulmonary embolism or pnemothorax

You need to see the doctor asap to get an evaluation and rule out such possibility as it can be serious

Good luck

Feel free to ask if you require any further clarification

If you are satisfied then do leave a POSITIVE RATING (preferably 5 stars) so that I may be credited for my work

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
