i have developed shortness of breath with exertion for the past 6+ weeks. Feels like on occasion I just can't get a full deep breath. This is unusual for me as I am and have always been very active--exercise a lot, have no history of asthma, no risk factors for heart disease (other than a bit of family history). Hickam's dictum states a patient can have more than 1 disease and I have a tendency to chalk everything up to MS, so I'm being worked up for heart, lung problems to be certain it's not.
So, anyone that is still ambulatory also have MS related breathing problems?
I know this can be an issue, weakened diaphragm, as MS advances, but read that it is less common in MS people that are still walking, jogging etc.
TIA and so glad to have this forum to knock these ? Around.
