Patient : Hello,
I have had quite bluish fingernails for as long as I can remember, I also have quite severe dark circles around my eyes and veins on my body are very visible.
The last time in school we were doing a lab exercise where you had to suck in air and my results were horrible, which worries me, since I'm not a regular smoker (I smoke around 10 when I go out - every other week).
I don't want to be a smartass, but these things seem to be connected in my newbie opinion. Something like low oxygen levels maybe? Sometimes I catch myself exhaling weirdly and a few people have said to me that I breath funny when were close and quiet (e.g. class).
I also remember a few years ago on a routine check the doctor said I have a split heart stream or something along the lines, if that helps in anyway.
I went to the doctor and they took my blood, which was more than fine and they dismissed the symptoms as me having a translucent skin.
But I'm pretty sure something is not right here.
I'm sorry about the category I put my question in, but I couldn't find nothing appropriate.
Thank You for your time.
