Re: Rapid increase in heart rate and shortness of breath when climbing stairs

I have blood work every 3 months for thyroid, I am still good and no change in that med thanks goodness. I have been on thyroid for 16 years. Dr. had me do an x-ray yesterday, can not figure out what that is going to show. I also have Mitral Valve Regurgitation and I hope she will do another echo to see if it has maybe gotten worse and that may be causing the cough and shortness of breath. I may have to change doctors and go to a speciality one.
