hi. so im normally an active person. i played flag football all through out high school and i played basketball non stop up until then. I am now a freshmen in college. I dont know when it all started but it was within 2012, but now if i walk up stairs my heart beats and i breath as if i just got done running. i am not big or fat or what you prefer to call it. it seems now if i were to do anything out of walking my heart beats really fast and i get winded. i have a little bit of breathing problems and find myself constantly needing something to drink. when my heart beats fast i can feel and hear it beat all the way up to my neck and i start to sweat. ive never had a sweating problem, but recently just walking non physical things make me sweat constantly. any suggestions on why this is? should i see a doctor?
I would say sweating upon mild exertion warrants a look by a doctor. You may have caught some virus that affected your heart a bit and it may just need a little time to recoup and you will be all better but since you are experiencing new symptoms that seem troubling to you I would just go ahead and make an appointment to be seen by a doctor. Take care and hope you feel better soon. Keep us posted on how you are.
