tightness in the chest area - shortness of breath


for the past 2 years i have been feeling tightness in the chest area (from the diaphram to the lungs) its causeing me to not function in everydays task at work/house, feeling very weak all the time and the feeling gets really worse when i am doing physical activity (even after 10 minutes walk i am starting to have problems breathing and have to sit down and it takes hours for that horrible feeling to pass ) the main symptomes are - trouble breathing, tightness in the chest area , weakness, sometimes a little nuasia (i do not have asthma) the feeling gets worse after i am eating and in hit.

the saturation is ok. a little bit low blood pressure, but still normal. the Iron levels are fine.

thank you

You need to see your doctor for help and treatment. Nobody on here is qualified to offer a diagnosis.

Good luck to you. X


I agree with Sassy, you need to see your GP. It sounds as if it could be serious.


If you have been having your pain for 2 years or more sounds like you should have seen a doctor by now...do you have a lung condition already diagnosed as your description can be any number of things ..see your GP and get checked over for your own peace of mind and health xxx
