Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

I am sorry you are short of breath.

how old are you?

it sounds like you could be having congestive heart failure

which is weakness of the heart

which can cause fluid to back up into the lungs and legs and cause swelling and edema

are you taking a fluid pill like lasix to help you get rid of excessive water in your body?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
what is your diagnosis.I don't have all day?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

you need to see your doctor again

the lasix twice a day may not be enough to get fluid and salt out of your body

if you have been eating more salt and drinking more fluids recently, you could be more fluid overloaded

and you could have fluid in your lungs causing your shortness of breath

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.
