This is going to be semi-long, but I want to try and cover everything. My symptoms started in mid July, 08. I was on vacation overseas, when one day I was taking a hike with some family through the mountains. Walking uphill, for the first time I got really exhausted quickly, and experianced shortness of breath
. I would have to try and take in a deep breath
sometimes to "feel" as if I could get enough air. We continued walking and I continued to have the symptoms.
