Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?

Is it more of a fluttering of the heart or does it feel like it's in the chest?

Also, is it worse when you exert yourself by walking or exercising? Any shortness of breath?

I don't know. It sounds occasionally like it's rumbling. It does get a bit worse with walking up the stairs. Occasional shortness of breath. Might it be a chest infection? I am worried!

Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 6 months ago

I wouldn't be worried about something life threatening or dangerous - it sounds more like you have a chest infection, it doesn't sound as though something is wrong with the heart. I would recommend resting and drinking plenty of fluids. If you start getting high fevers or worsening shortness of breath then antibiotics may be necessary. But I doubt it, most of these things are viral and will resolve well on their own.

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.
