Hello all, a while back I posted on this forum, with regards to worsening breathlessness (mainly on exertion/incline). I have had chest X-rays, Cardio Pulmonary Exercise test, Spirometry and an advanced lung function test (all of which have been normal, with no evidence of ling disease), however I still continue to experience left sided chest tightness and breathlessness - usually walking upstairs/uphill.
I also keep getting recurrent chesty cough/chest infection type symptoms, that always affect the left side - I get left sided wheezing, tightness, cough and burning sensation in left lung when coughing.
I have been to my GP/seen different GPs on numerous occasions, describing all my symptoms. I have been referred to the respiratory clinic and more recently, Cardiology, as I did have ectopics with the exercise test (and get them frequently) - however, the most recent test (MRI) revealed no inducive ischemia, but symptoms may be due to Microvascular disease (Consultant isn't even sure)!
At the moment, I am unwell with another chest infection/chesty cough, which again is worsening all the left sided symptoms. I have struggled with acid reflux over many years and my main concern is possible lung damage from this/something related. I'm worried there is an underlying condition not diagnosed. Any thoughts/input would be appreciated.
