- CASE FILE
When I began a regimen of hypertension and diabetes medication in 2010, within a week I developed debilitating shortness of breath.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
The shortness of breath has persisted to date and precludes ostensibly all physical activity.
I have seen over half a dozen pulmonologists, and they have prescribed various inhalers but none cause any improvement, and in most cases they degrade my breathing. I had developed similar shortness of breath problems when I was taking similar medications in 2004. The symptoms disappeared when I stopped ingesting the medication. My doctors have universally observed my condition but are at a loss for a method to treat it. None have addressed the issue of my medications.
