Call your doc: If you feel short of breath, call your doctor right away or go to the ER if it is persistent and constant. Respiratory and blood abnormalities can cause this feeling, as can meds. If you have trouble breathing, don't drive yourself but get seen if you don't hear from the doc quickly.
