shortness of breath, palpitations, rapid heart rate, weakness

I have shortness of breath often.  I feel like i have to yawn to get a full breath of air, and that doesn't always work.  I am dizzy, or lightheaded periodically through out the day.  Sometimes i do experience palpitations, but i usually experience a rapid heart beat, a pounding sensation.  Every once in a while, i feel weak.  My legs, and arms feel weak.

I know many of these symtoms (symptoms) are associated with anxiety, but I am afraid that I may have an actual problem.

Hi Jessie,
You may not realize that you have posted your question in the Multiple Sclerosis forum.  

My suggestion is that you be evaluated thoroughly by a cardiologist and make sure that their is no underlying  coronary problem. If that all checks out ok, go back to your doctor and discuss what else should be looked at.

Its frustrating to not feel well  - I hope you get some answers and some help.
