Pregnancy: There are a number of conditions that can cause anxiety. One example is hyperthyroidism. Shortness of breath can be a normal process of later pregnancy, from anxiety or from a medical condition. It is important to bring this up with your obstetric physician. This could be anxiety or a medical condition. Your physician will evaluate you and can help make the diagnosis.
