I've been having shortness of breath and heart palpitations. My shortness of breath was brought up at my doctors and he listened to my chest and said I was find. I told him my pulse ox machine was reading 94 and he said that was fine. Today after any acctivity at all I'm huffing and puffing. Sitting here I want to take a big drag of air in but don't. Checked my pulse ox and it is even worse, 91 92 93 I'm very tired, throw an extra beat about every 4 to 6 beats. Very dizzy too. I've just been diagnosed with T2 but am not on medication yet. Is this pulse ox with the trouble breathing something to be concerned about?
