I had a stint put in my heart about 18 months ago. At the time I have several symptoms, including shortness of breath. I have never gotten over the shortness of breath. My doctor says that many of his patients complain of shortness of breath and that mine has nothing to do with my hear. I have been tested for anything lung-related and have been told that's not my problem. My breathing seems to be getting worse, but none of my doctors will pay any attention to it.
When I first went in, my doctors told me I was fine, but kept testing on my insistence until they discovered I had a 80% blocked artery. Now, I seem to have some of the same symptoms, and once again, they just say I'm fine. If they couldn't tell I was having heart problems before without more extensive tests, how can they tell I'm OK now just listening to my chest?
Symptoms: Worse at night. Many nights I don't sleep well and have even dreamed that I couldn't breathe. It's not all the time, but seems to be much of the time. When I'm really busy in the daytime, it doesn't bother me so much. Could it just be anxiety causing all of this? I am miserable!
