I'm a 30 year old momma with know child hood asthma ever. However for the past 5 weeks I've been having strange symptoms that no doc can figure out. I was in Japan when it all started. I had intense presure headsches for 2 weeks then those went away for the most part. I suddenly developed constant shortness breath, heart palpatations, weakness and fatigue.Going up stairs would cause my heart to race and it was hard to breath. Night time seems to be the worse where it's almost like i forget to breath and it wakes me up or stops me from sleeping. I also get adrenaline surges from this. It's awful!
I've been to 3 cardiologists who have done every test besides actually looking inside my arteries. I've had extensive blood work that all came back normal besides thyroid. TSH was a 3.78 I feel better around a 2. I also have Hashimotos. My cki was slightly elevated at 382 but all other heart enzymes were negative. I had a chest CT with dye that was normal as well. Now I just saw a pulmologist who did preform a breathing test who said it looked normal but when I used the inhaler I did show slight improvement. She said it seemed as if my short airways are inflamed. Gave me a low dose inhlaer and sent me on my way. Well last night I had a really bad time breathing. It got really bad I almost called 911. I used my inhaler and it did help but not that much. So my the doc prescribed a week of oral steriods and a different inhaler to use. I hate taking anything! I'm scared and concerned this will never go away.
I'm just not sure this is asthma. Cold this be allergies?????? I thought coming back from Japan to Arizona would help but I'm not getting any better and I've been home for 2 weeks now. Any ideas or help?
