      So I had a similar problem for ages I had my chest listened to, I had a chest xray and the pulse oximeter they put on my finger said my oxygen levels were ok. I started to get other symptoms like palpitations, bad breathlessness and bad chest pains which I thought was my heart but it actually turned out to be multiple pulmonary emboli. I had to get a chest CT with contrast privately which is where I got my diagnosis because no one thought I had anything wrong with me on the NHS.

      Ask for a d-dimer blood test if they haven't already given you one, this will indicate whether you need a CT or not. If it is what I had, it is much better caught early.
