MRI is a good step. I got mine 6 weeks ago and it has thrown everything upside down. I went from a non-treatable heart muscle decease to 'don't know exactly, but not that what we thought. I have at least a PE, but it might be something else, other tests coming and to be waited for. Basically, you don't know what it is until you had an MRI, and even then you can just exclude some things.
The annoying bit is the wait between appointments. I got my MRI about 10 weeks ago, 5 weeks ago I spoke to the heart muscle specialist, now I got an appointment in Dezember for the 1st consultant again.
I am quite jealous you are still running a bit. I ran for the train last week, and we hit Putney before I started to breath normally again. Went through the 'scared to drop dead' but if I would be at risk they would keep me in the hospital.
My hope is to start running again with a double parkrun on January 1st. Started golf in the meantime.
