Doctors routinely fail to diagnose women's valid medical conditions and complaints, and instead attribute all issues to emotional/mental issues. I'd get a second opinion on the shortness of breath.
I had chest pain and shortness of breath for over a year. The chest pain started and would last a couple hours but then got to a point where it would last 8 or more hours. This isn’t anxiety. I had a severely infects that gallbladder that was doing damage to my body and mental health for over a year that doctors just said was anxiety. Like SEVERAL doctors even when I told them it last for 8+ hours they said it was anxiety. So I’d get a second opinion or even a 3rd or 4th because like the top comment said they tend to misdiagnose women and chalk it up to emotions or weight!
