"Shortness of breath"

About: Russells Hall Hospital

Anything else?

Would like a say a massive thankyou to a very friendly doctor and a student doctor in a&e today for making me feel calmer after i was stressing about feeling very short of breath and working myself up over the cause of why i was short of breath. I am a very anxious person and was coming up with a variety of reasons why i thought i was short of breath, which my doctor tested me for making me feel a hell of a lot better. So i am very grateful to both of these people. Thankyou very much
