    Confused 67 year old non smoker

    4 weeks ago I started feeling shortness of breath while doing my 5x week fast 2 mile walk. Since then my health has really gone down hill. Have had xray, ct, electrocardiogram, echocardiogram...all normal. Had PFT and my ratio was 66 (less than 70). But because my lung capacity was at 117% the Pulmonologist said my lungs are probably not causing my symptoms as no real evidence of emphysema or bronchitis on CT: My shortness of breath seems worse when inactive, I get chills all the time with no fever (many times after eating). I have muscle weakness and extreme fatigue with varying degrees of headache. Anyone else have similar issues with or without COPD.
