My daughter has been having symptoms that have been getting worse. For over 2 years she was thought to be having asthma, which she may have. These started as having a cough in the evenings. Than went to having trouble running, and than walking fast. But, never with wheezing.Not sure if there were other symptoms.
Now she has other symptoms that are different. She has had severe chest pains, weakness, feeling dizzy, racing heart and had to leave work. This lasted about an hour. Even after she had her inhaler it continued but than went away about 1/2 hour later after going to the ER. Where they didn't do any testing and just sent her home telling us it was an acute asthma attack. Her oxygen level was normal. She had no symptoms prior to the attack and just was taking food out to a customer. She has since had numerous attacks. Even just laying down singing to herself. She gets sweaty, has trouble talking, fatigue, dizziness, trouble standing, and racing heart.
She had a heart monitor that her doctor still has to look at. Another doctor briefly looked at is and said he didn't think it was arrhythmia, but she had episodes where her heart raced too fast or too slow. We are now asking for an ultrasound to be done.
What types of conditions could cause these types of problems or fast/slow heart beats.
