Unhappy chest pressure, difficulty breathing, and voice change

My otherwise extremely active and fit 20 year old brother has recently been uncapacitated by difficulty breathing, pressure on chest, and is quickly tired. He eats like the health conscious exercise buff that he is/was... He is so overcome by this that he can not even read aloud or do any strenuous activity. There was no change in his activities leading up to this and it struck suddenly. He was prone to nose bleeds as a kid but not for years until he had two very recently.. The doctors have probed this guy something fierce with blood panels and they have looked at his vocal chords. A few months before all of this he passed a kidney stone without too much pain. Please any ideas would be welcome. We are worried sick about our guy... Thank you!

Have they done a Barrium Swallow. Sounds very much like something I had years ago, called GERD. It was extreme pressure on my chest and I had a horrible time breathing, tired quickly. I had a barrium swallow and they were able to detect it. Just a thought... Kim

What tests have they done so far? Without know what they have already tested for it is hard to say what more they might want to do. Post more info for better help.
