    Reverse Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy

    I was diagnosed with Reverse Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy 12 months ago. This occurred post respiratory arrest due to asthma attack and adrenaline was used by the paramedics. My cardiologist has given me the all clear, echocardiogram has shown heart has returned to normal.
    However, I continue to suffer shortness of breath. I have no fluid in my legs. It’s a feeling of not being able to take a deep breath. My cardiologist feels it may be stress-related however I don’t. Is it possible 12 months after the Takotsubo event to still feel shortness of breath sometimes?
