Has anyone here ever dealt with basically a constant state of breathlessness?
I really do hope your still active on these boards. I am a 30 year old male and have EXACTLY the same symptoms as you describe and I have had EXACTLY the same tests done and my GP has prescribed EXACTLY the same medication (salbutamol/albuterol, that does absolutely nothing)
I am constantly short of breath / felling like I need oxygen and have to force deep breaths in before I feel releived. My symptoms also started of with heart palpitations (out of nowhere and they often knocked me off my feet) which went and left me with shortness of breath especially at rest, and its my only symptom. I can excercise with the best of them and almost feel better after a few miles on the treadmill/bike, excercise does not make my condition worse. Blood oxygen = excellent, Lung Capacity = Excellent, Chest X-rays = clean as a whistle, weight = 12.5st and stable (male, 30, 6ft1).
Only other notable mediacal conditions is I have a bit of IBS (set off by spicy food i.e. jalepenos) and a large lipoma on my back, right at the bottom of my left lung / diaphragm border that gives me the occasional irratence if I lie on it)
Apart from that I can be considered quite healthy.
Did you ever find out what the problem was?
