I have been drinking heavily for almost 4 years. Pretty much every night. Ive had some shortness of breath lately and i am a smoker. Could I have alcoholic cardiomyopathy? I am a 26 years old female

It is not possible for me to make the diagnosis that you have alcoholic cardiomyopathy or any other condition. You need to be examined by a physician who can listen to your lungs and heart, conduct a physical examine to look for signs of swelling or an enlarged liver and do a chest x-ray and EKG.
