Not typically: Although there is a central pain syndrome associated with thalmic strokes, shortness of breath would not be seen. In one with those symptoms , angina or heart disease, which can be associated with shortness of breath, chest burning and typically arm pain but hand pain could be possible. Patients with stoke are at risk. Other causes exist as well. This problem needs medical evaluation asap.
