Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am a 19 year old female. After sneezing, I observed something round and grey in color. Sometimes, I feel short of breath and heaviness around the heart. I begin to feel body pain and tiredness after climbing like 20 stairs.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Get your heart checked with an echo. Do an X-ray to see what is in the lungs. You might be anemic. So, check your hemoglobin too.
