Hi,


I had a heart attack 4 years ago at age 34 and had shortness of breath before and after. I also had a stent to fix the artery.


It went away only after I had counciling for anxiety. I didnt believe anyone who suggested it was anxiousness,

Welcome!!


Thank you so much for joining us here on Heart Health! Wow, 5 bypasses, eh? I've been very fortunate... My heart made 2 of it's own bypasses. I do have a stent, as well. Because of your history, I'm inclined to think that there

I was wondering if it might be asthma or copd.
Not a doctor here but it might be related to the respiratory system.
In May I had a heart attack.
Also dealing with RA possibly affecting my organs...heart and lungs.
Hope this helps.
