I thought that I had asthma because I've been having shortness of breath lately. I did all the tests and they came out negative. I was put on a bunch of air treatments and they worked with some success. My Asthma doctor sent me to get a Full Pulmonary test and a EKG.
The Pulmonary test came back normal but the EKG showed an enlarged heart which I've been told can make breathing hard.
I'm a big guy 5'11, 260 lbs but I run three times a week and lift weights three times a week. I don't smoke or do drugs.
Does anyone have any experience with enlarged hearts and what to expect.
Ironically, when it's sunny and I sit out in the sun, I always feel good. When it's cold I often get a flare up in my breathing. Again, it's not asthma it's an enlarged heart.
