I am a 37-year-old female with a history of asthma and SVT. I am currently at 3500 m altitude, and I am getting upper central chest pain on inhalation, which is much worse going uphill. I do not have any other altitude symptoms or shortness of breath. What could cause this? I am currently taking Levlen and Diamox.
Thank you for replying. My pulse is regular, and my oxygen saturation is 95. My respirations are increasing while going uphill, and they take a while to settle down. I am supposed to trek up to 5550 m over the next few days. Is it fine for me to continue? Is there anything I can take to help with the pain and increased respirations when going uphill?
