I've had trouble breathing for a month. I'm an asthmatic but through X-rays, blood tests and EKG's we've ruled out the cardiac possibility and it is not asthma related. I hear a deep sounding wheeze sometimes, I also have hoarsneess with with some flem (phlegm). It could be due to nasal congestion but could this also be a form of Pleurisy? or would they have see that through the tests?
No, this is not pleurisy. Pleurisy is chest pain that occurs with breathing.
I can’t speculate what is going on with the limited information you have provided, but I am not convinced, regarding your shortness of breath, that cardiac disease and asthma have been ruled out as the cause.
Your having trouble breathing for a month is worrisome. The cause of this must be determined with reasonable certainty, if appropriate treatment is to begin. You may want to consider requesting a second opinion.
