I would go to walk in centre and get checked out.


Hi get checked out I'm sure you are ok.


As for now please practice breathing exercises

Give 101 a call. Especially if you have shortness of breath when sitting down.


I wish I would have been checked earlier. It can stop anything else from becoming a problem, like mine was my heart started to race

Can you request a chest x-ray check your lungs are all ok

I'm not even registered at a doctors
