Re: *** is wrong with my heart and lungs

Perhaps you are hyperventilating and don't realize it. Try to relax and take slow deep breaths and slow exhales. Do this frequently during the day and see if things return to normal.

Re: *** is wrong with my heart and lungs

Karl, I felt very much like that when I was diagnosed with Graves disease ( hyperthyroid) in 1994 . I had other symptoms as well, hair loss , losing weight, an incredible craving for chocolate which I don't even like. I was eating bags full of mini Butterfingers and losing weight ! I could not sit still , just felt crazed. At nite I could hear my heart beating in my ears, my at rest pulse rate was 145. They can check out your thyroid numbers with a blood test. If you have any of these other symptoms too go and have that checked. Lia
