About me

Does This Sound Familiar?

Your chest feels tight and heavy, especially during physical activity?

Maybe you’re struggling to breathe, and feel tired quite quickly?

Perhaps your heart skips a beat, or you noticed an irregular and fast heartbeat?

Or you feel lightheaded and dizzy, as if you’re about to faint?

If this is how you feel…you’ve come to the right place.
