Shortness of breath: What you are describing is feeling short of breath. This can occur with many conditions and i would need to know more history to tell you what could be causing this. Do you have any medical problems? Does it happen always or on occasion, at rest or with activity? Do you get any associated symptoms? Chest pain ? Pain with inspiration? Do you cough? Do you smoke? How long has this occurred? Any meds.
