I was actually referred to this community from my other site relating to quit smoking. They seem to think your site may be more helpful, so this is what I posted:
After quitting smoking in 2010 from 37 years of smoking I have found that I have acquired "something"
and these so called doctors can only keep putting me through every hurdle in the book.
So, now that I have quit smoking I can no longer run, jog, or even walk fast without be out of breath; when I smoked two packs a day I could run 5 miles in 20 minutes and smoke while doing this, swim and basically do anything at all always while smoking. I have been tested for oxygen content, COPD, blood borne, sleep apnea, and have had some of the stress tests performed all to come up empty handed. Doctor says do not do any extra exercising until this is figured out for it may kill me. my heart gets to racing so high that I cannot get my breath for about one minute, then all is fine again. the tread mill incident was the best, the doctors wanted to get my heart rate up to 144 bpm from my normal 52 bpm, we got up to 90 and I literally passed out. These doctors gave me the nitro pill and that was also a very big mistake, for if you are not actually having a heart attack that pill will make you wish you were, for you will get the worst migraine you have ever thought of....be ware! Oh, I also had the inhaled regiment; it too was no good!
So, the bottom line of all this chit chat is: what the hell is wrong with me? I don't think this is age, sex, or race related so we will leave this out to save on the bias.
