Hoping you can help. I am a 36-year old female with a history of asthma, allergies, high blood pressure, severe, chronic constipation and generalized anxiety. I currently take the following medications: Serevent Diskus, Pulmicort, Allegra, Benicar (40mg), Prevacid (30mg), Slow FE, Ovral (BC pills - continuous), (1/2 dose Citrucil + 1 T. Milk of Magnesia + 1 capful Miralax for constipation)and Florastor. About 5 weeks ago, began having shortness of breath (during cold period). This was not unusual as my asthma has difficulty during cold temps and my allergies have problems due to dust allergies and mold. Was told to increase inhaler to 2 puffs/2x day by general doctor. Did not seem to help. Continued feeling short of breath at rest and when walking around. Am breathing mostly through my mouth,labored breathing (especially during exhale) and often take a deep breath in middle of a sentence. BP and pulse have increased. (Resting pulse is 95-105). Not sure if this is due to anxiety or something else. BP med was just increased to 40 mg. Peak flows are normal, chest sounds clear and spirometry is normal. Had recent chest x-ray, blood work, EKG and CAT scan to rule out blood clot in lungs. All were normal. Pulse Ox was 99%. Am concerned about what is causing this problem - could this be anxiety, allergies, increased pulse making me think I'm out of breath, or possibly even pulmonary hypertension? I've tried adding on Ventolin, but it just increases my pulse and makes me very jittery which makes me feel more out of breath. Any suggestions? Should I see a pulmonologist?
