BAD example: I live in Boston, Dr. Patel at MGH hospital diagnosed me with a schwannoma tumor last month, then I traveled to Tokyo and taught english for a year.
Acceptable example: I live in the United States, I had a tumor & surgery, then I traveled abroad for work.
1. When you are walking and exerting yourself it could mean that you are getting insufficient blood to your extremities.
2. Age & gender, Please add or substract (1-3years if adult for privacy)?
3. When did problem start?
4. Have you had this before?
5. Is it getting better or worse?
6. Body Mass Index? http://bit.ly/CDCbmi
8. Heart Rate?
10. Medical conditions including pregnancies both past & present?
Is the shortness of breath a new thing? If it is, you should see a physician. Do you have a heart condition also? How is your cholesterol?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks for your quick reponse Dr. Brett. I have had back surgery and a stroke before. I have a irregular Heart Beat. I know you can't advise me legally but do you think my Heart being irregular or stopped arteries cause me to feel out of breath when I exert myself. I just want your opinion as a layman not as a Proffesional to help me, any advice could help. Thank you Anthony
Thank you for the reply. This is a public forum so there is no need for you to divulge personal information or photo. I would prefer you did not. However, you are an adult, and the decision is ultimately up to you.
You have concerns right now, the shortness of breath with exertion, and the calf pain with wakling.
1. Please take the questionaiire, Unfortunatetly I do not think it is interactive. And you may need a piece of paper to write down the question number, or you could do it here:
The website is CCQ
CCQ stands for Clinical COPD Questionaire.
2. Next, the pain in your legs with walking. That is concerning for ischemia or arterial insufficiency of the legs.
Smoking cessation is frequently combined with exercise therapy in patients with intermittent claudication. Cigarette smoking is the most significant independent risk factor for development of chronic peripheral arterial occlusive disease and is associated with progression of established disease and a higher likelihood of disabling claudication, limb-threatening ischemia, amputation, and the need for intervention. In addition, many observational studies report poorer patency of lower extremity vascular reconstructions among smokers. Data are limited on the specific effects of smoking cessation on intermittent claudication. One controlled, but nonrandomized trial assessed the results of smoking cessation on intermittent claudication and found a statistically significant improvement in maximum walking distance in patients with intermittent claudication who stopped smoking. Because of the adverse general health effects of cigarette smoking and the marked increase in morbidity and mortality from cardiopulmonary causes among smokers, patients with intermittent claudication should be vigorously counseled to stop smoking.
