Hi again Nemm. Your list of symptoms sounds very much like some autoimmune diseases to me. I say that because I myself have a diagnosis of mixed/overlapping connective tissue disease and rheumatoid arthritis and a strong indication of Sjogren's (sp?) Disease. All of these diseases and syndromes can have symptoms like trouble breathing, muscle/joint aches and pains, swallowing problems (Sjogrens's especially!), heart and lung problems. Although women are much more likely to suffer from autoimmune disease, men can still get these problems. In order to know if you have any of these you would need some very specific blood tests done.

Were the results of your pulmonary tests and your echocardiagram within normal range? Have you ever suffered from allergies or asthma? I can imagine how confused and concerned you are at this point. You continue to have some really uncomfortable symptoms without a real diagnosis. What does the doctor advise you to do at this point? BrittleBones

The results were in normal range im pretty sure they Didnt say anything about it so usually its good. I dont know if I have allergies and Ive never suffered from Ashtma before. I had about three doctors, One told me this is not a big problem, the other to see a psychiatrist because he said its probably anxiety and the other the same. I dont experience Aches and Pains though.
