Suzy, it’s difficult to say what the problem is without being able to examine you. It sounds like it might be due to your heart or lungs, but I’ll have to examine you before I can say more. I wrote something on the non-cardiac causes of chest pain a while ago and if you’re interested in a copy you can mail me at Good luck.
