Hey it’s me again. So, if you read my last thread I am dealing with some fast heart rates and finally called my doctor who ordered a heart monitor to wear for 48 hours and see the cardiologist on Monday. The thing now is, I have been getting short of breath/hard to take deep breaths and it’s been going on about the same amount of time as the heart rate concerns but forgot to tell my PCP (it was just a phone call). Sooo now I am super worried about the C word. I can walk 20 feet and feel like I can’t breath. I can’t complete a full sentence without stopping to breath. I feel like this is really something bad. I know us HA sufferers always feel like it’s really something but this time I really do....I’m sure I’ve said that before. Even laying in bed right now I feel short of breath. I decided to come here instead of googling.
I wish my doctor would have known so he could order a chest X-ray. Maybe the cardiologist could???? I just don’t know why my HA has been so bad. I had it under control for years! Thanks for listening (reading) if you made it this far. You guys really help and I appreciate you!

I feel short of breath as well. It is our anxiety. Definitely tell the cardiologist and he will set your mind at ease. I had covid in February and everytime I feel the slightest congestion, I am scared to death.

I’m sorry you are dealing with it too! I’m sure if you had a chest X-ray and talked to a doctor everything is fine but I know it’s hard to get out mind to believe it. Anxiety stinks!

I hope it’s just anxiety....I forgot I have two C words to worry about....Covid and the other one that my anxiety won’t even let me type! Sounds stupid but it’s my ocd :-( I’m worried about lung C or something like that. I will definitely tell my cardiologist Monday. I just hope he listens and doesn’t blow me off. I’ve never been to him. I just shouldn’t be getting short of breath waking from one room to the other!

This happens to me sporadically as well, sometimes for days at a time. I even went through it recently. Laying down on one side or the other seemed to make it worse. Then it just goes away, and I don't have it again for some unpredictable amount of time.

Think we can gather from all these posts that it is a normal anxiety thing. That there is nothing to worry about. It will pass in time.
