    Anyone here has shortness of breath that comes and goes?

    Not sure if its my over weight or what but it sucks.

    Its random and deep relaxation does help.

    My chest x ray, ultra sound, heart size, heart stress test, Holter monitor all normal.

    Rehum says no clue.

    Any suggestions?

    I have no clue either but I wonder if it’s worth seeing a pulmonologist (lung doctor)? Otherwise could it be anxiety?

    100 mg Minocycline every other day (Actavis Brand)

    I experienced shortness of breath when I was first diagnosed. It was because I was severely anemic at the time.

    For sure medications and supplements can cause shortness of breath. Also I have read an article and the author claims that shortness of breath can happen if your stomach is low in acid. If you want take apple cider before meals for 2-3 days and see if there is any difference. People use it also for acid reflux but that article was about low acidity.

    RA tried everything: Methotraxate, Arava, Humira. Pneumonia three times. Anemia. Very low iron. Hypothyroidism
    AP from April 2014 till August 2015. No luck.
    Current medications: Natural thyroid, Mobic, LDN, supplements incl. milk thistle, NAC, vitamins and minerals.
    MTHFR heterozygous
