Any doctors, please help! My heart is not right! What's wrong with it?
I'm 16 years old and have noticed something wrong with me heart and respiratory system for a while but have kind of just rolled it off and I want to know once and for all what's up, if anything.
I'm pretty sure that I have a mild case of asthma because I can't catch my breath easily after I exercise strenuously. Here's where it get's weird though. If I exercise very hard for a while, my heart rate does NOT come down for a long time. If I run. Also, I think I have a sist.

LONG -- BUT worth the reading.
I know this will help you ... Please make the connection.
I am a nurse with over 25 years experience in this area and I have seen a lot of people with various illnesses caused from chemicals and fragranced products as well as VOC’s in their homes, schools and workplace. This problem is growing as more and more chemicals are being introduced and used on a daily basis.
We are seeing more and more people with Asthma, Migraines, Headaches, Allergies, Hives and respiratory illnesses. I can not emphasize how important it is to educate yourself about MCS and the harm you may be doing to your health by using chemicals and fragranced products.
If you or a loved one suffers from Asthma, Allergies, Autism, chronic headaches, reproductive problems, Migraines, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia, you need to read further and learn about the signs and symptoms of MCS - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
Most doctors will not inform you about this because patients as a whole like to walk out of a doctors office with a prescription for some magical medicine and they do not want to be told that their expensive new perfume or newly installed carpet may be the culprit. So, the doctor will give you medications and many of these meds either do not work or cause other health problems.
Chemicals and fragranced products are often the root of all evil when it comes to your health. Many of the below mentioned items are common triggers to sinus, asthma, itching, headaches, Migraines and allergy problems amongst other health issues. Get rid of them and your lungs will thank you and you will breathe easier.
And, it is not only personal body or cleaning products causing havoc on your health….many people become ill after wearing brand new clothing, dry-cleaned clothes, installing new carpet, painting, buying a new mattress or after home renovations because of the Flame Retardants, Benzenes, Formaldehydes, etc. used in these products. So the answer is NO, you are not imagining that 2 weeks after your home, office or classroom got renovated you started to become ill, get dizzy or have headaches. This is happening more and more these days and adults as well as children are becoming sicker and sicker.
Unfortunately, too many doctors compound the problem by prescribing chemical medications to try to alleviate the symptoms of an already chemical overloaded body and they rarely tell the patient to eliminate the chemical offenders. How many times have I seen people in the grocery store with Bounce, Glade Plug-Ins and Febreeze in their shopping cart along with a bottle of Benadryl , Migraine Excedrin and a box of Allergy Tablets ? Why don’t they make the connection?
No Bounce or dryer sheets
No Body sprays or cologne
No Glade Plug-ins
No scented candles
No Fragranced Products on Body, Hair or Clothing

What you need to do if you are concerned that you have asthma is to see an asthma specialist. A Pulmonologist. This doctor can order a complete pulmonary function test to see what is going on inside your lungs.
