Yes

Feeling_anxious
Anxiety or stress can cause many symptoms in the body such as breathlessness, nausea, headache, or even chest pains. One way to help relax is to take deep breaths in and out very slowly 3 or 4 times. If the breathless symptoms persist I would suggest calling your doctor for advice

Feeling bloated and breathlessness?

Short of breath

Breathlessness
Lots of potential causes. Just swallowing too much air can cause distension in your abdomen(bloating)and that can be associated with breathlessness from interfering with diaphragmatic motion. Having said that something else could be wrong, see your Doctor to be sure.

Help! Could sore ribs cause breathlessness?

Yes

Breathlessness
People with sore ribs typically won't take the usual number of deep breaths or big sighs in a given time period (say per hour) that we all usually unconsciously do. This is called 'splinting' in medical lingo, and can lead to shortness of breath. Rib stuff is hard; you simply have to deal with the discomfort until they heal up. If you are having significant breathlessness, go get an xray.

Why am i breathless after quitting smoking?

Not ususual

Smoking_cessation_programs
The smoke was irritating and helped you cough and clear your secretions. Many new ex-smokers notice increased shortness of breath initially but stay the course! it gets better and eventually you'll be much better off!
