Yes and no: Fibrocystic breasts can cause pain and that pain can be worsened by caffeine intake. Nevertheless, it is not normally associated with shortness of breath. I advise you to seek prompt medical attention.

Not likely: Although too much caffeine is not good for health, I do not think caffeine is causing these problems in your case.

Too much coffee usually causes racing heart beats and insomnia but no shortness of breath.

Caffeine: Can cause the breast to retain more fluid causing pain. But there may be other causes of our shortness of breath so see your doctor for an evaluation. Also decrease your caffeine intake as it is bad for your body.
