I am glad to hear that you are going to the doctor. Too many of the threads (I am not exercising and I feel sickly and I did an injury to myself, but I'm taking care of it on my own, so why am I not getting better) there is no doctor or specialist mentioned. I do hope it is not serious, and you can get better soon. Take care of yourself and don't push past what you feel comfortable doing.
Follow through and take care of yourself. If it is a breathing issue you may go to a Pulmonary Physician, as I had an oxygen issue and was referred. The tests are nothing to fear and I was helped! Good Luck!
Thank you all for your support! I also thought my iron was low since i had the same issue in the past. There are so many diseases linked to my symptoms, at this point I just want to know what I have so I can start taking care of myself.

Wow, I was thinking maybe your iron was low when I started reading your post-that's what was wrong with me when I had no energy. Hope your cardiologist can rule something out. Take good care of yourself.

Remember that your overall health absolutely comes first, so don't be hard on yourself about not working out. You're taking care of yourself exactly the way you need to, especially with the fainting.
Hope this works out better for you in the end!!! Glad you're seeing a cardio doc!!
In the meantime, try some other sedentary things to help you keep your sanity - meditation, deep breathing, etc.
Good luck to you on your journey!!!

I'm sorry that you're not feeling good, I hope you feel better! In the meantime you could pay more attention to nutrition instead of exercise. I had to do that at first and I still lost tons of weight and maintained after.

That is a scary feeling especially knowing it could be a heart issue. I hope when you are out walking you are not alone, or at least have a cell phone on you. Hope the cardiologist appointment goes well and the problem is something easy to fix and that you are feeling better soon!

So I decided to see my doctor since I have not been feeling like my normal self lately. I can be up as early as 6am, but with no energy to move around. I have not worked out for about a month now. Only the normal walking I do every day. I am still not sure what I have, but since I have been fainting my doctor thinks I might have some kind of heart condition. At first I thought I was anemic since I have been pretty weak, but all my test results have come back normal. My oxygen has been low and I can feel it while I'm walking. I talk and feel like I have to stop and catch my breath! I am schedule to see a Cardiologist in a couple of weeks. I hope I'm back to normal soon!
