Cardiology Health & Fitness

I’m a female, 24 this year. I have been experiencing chest discomfort and some shortness of breath for 3 years. I also realise that stress produces these symptoms, and resting or calming myself helps to improve the symptoms. How do doctors determine whether chest discomfort is due to a heart or lung related issue? Thank you in advance!

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Dear Panda

I am sorry to hear about your symptoms.  Essentially, the clinician would take a thorough medial history, examine you and then determine if further investigations are needed. 

This might include a chest X-ray and ECG in the first instance and further tests might include blood tests, CT scans etc 

It does sound like your symptoms may be anxiety/stress related, nevertheless chest pain and difficulty breathing should not be ignored and I would certainly arrange to see a general physician, cardiologies or exercise specialist.

I hope this helps.
