Hello, I was hoping for some advice on some health issues I am having. I have suffered with chest infections since a child, and a diagnosis of M.E when I was 12. Over the last few years I have been increasingly out of breath and suffering with palpitations. I am 39 yrs of age and do not smoke and not over weight. 18 months ago I became extremely fatigued with headaches and aching joints everyday. I also presented with lung congestion that after several courses of antibiotics would not clear up. I became very breathless with low oxygen levels and ended up in hospital. Steroids cleared the congestion but have continued being very breathless the more I move around and continue to have pain in the lung area due to the pleurisy. June of last year I experienced heart palpitations, I was admitted to hospital with a heart rate of 180 Bpm. Adenosine only made the heart rate faster I was eventually shocked and my heart rhythm came down to 110bpm. I have been diagnosed with atrial tachycardia and P. O. T. S. I have recently had some lung function tests and seen a lung specialist who has referred me for a ct scan as my gas transfer is low. I am feeling overwhelmed by all of this, my quality of life has been effected so much as I feel quite unwell everyday. I am not seeing the specialist until the 7th of July, he has referred me to a respiratory physiotherapist as well. My fev1-fvc ratio is 89% peak flow 369 86% predicted and low gas transfer of 83% predicted. I am also on bisoprolol for my heart. Just wondering what would cause low dclo? Any advice would be much appreciated. Kelly 😊
