Can someone help me, please. I have been breathless since July, 2015. Things got bad at Christmas and I was admitted to hospital for 6 days with suspected heart failure. My blood pressure was very high and I had badly swollen ankles, legs, hands and tummy. However, the cardiologist said my heart was not too bad for my age of 74 years, maybe I should lose some weight. Since then, I have been diagnosed with sleep apnea and atrial fibrillation, but whilst waiting for the CPAP machine, my doctor has put me on night oxygen as I was unable to sleep soundly, as I kept waking up with panic feelings. He suspected I was low on oxygen at night. My question is, as I am breathless, all the time, even talking on the phone makes me breathless, have I a lung disease? I am waiting for pulmonary testing, as the hospital doctor looking after me left and my file got forgotten. The breathlessness is incessant, drains me of energy and leaves me very depressed. I can't climb stairs no longer or walk unaided more than a few steps as the breathlessness is horrendous. Any help would be so appreciated. Thank you.
