I have POTS and Lupus how come I can now run 2 miles on a jog but I still get short of breath going up flights of stairs?
It's your POTS: Your ability to run 2 miles suggests that SLE is not affecting your heart or lungs. POTS often presents with shortness of breath &/or palpitations, more common at the beginning of exercise. You require a more lengthly warm-up, hard to provide when going up the stairs. If this symptom is excessively bothersome, you may benefit from low to moderate dose beta blocker such as metoprolol or nadolol

Go to ER: You may be having a cardiac event and need to be seen by a doctor. An ekg, chest xrray, and lab work could screen you for a problem with the blood vessels feeding your as well as congestive heart failure. If this is occurring now please go to the emergency room and get checked out. It can make a difference to be treated early.
Many things: There are many causes of shortness of breath. The easiest way is to compartmentalize into three categories. 1. Any problems with the heart – heart failure, enlargement of the heart, or valve disease of the heart. 2. Any problem with the lungs – asthma, COPD, fluid around the lungs, fluid in the lungs, or lung scarring to name a few. 3. Everything else – deconditioning or knee/hip pain for example.
Shortness of breath: It hasn't made me short of breath yet. If you're referring to sinus infection or uri, they can but usually at most very mild. Your question isn't clear as to what 'this' is. As bill clinton said, it all depends on what this is.See 1 more doctor answer
Histatussin: Histatussin, which is not available in the USA, contains chlorpheniramine, a well tolerated short acting anti-histamine, ammonium chloride, used as an expectorant, and ephedrine for nasal congestion. AC can cause metabolic acidosis which would make you feel short of breath. Ephedrine can cause tachyarrhythmias which would make you feel S.O. B. so the answer is...yes, it's possible.
Many things: Shortness of breath needs to be evaluated by your physician. It can be due to heart problems, lung problems (smoking related, asthma, etc), deconditioning, irregular heart rhythms, vocal cord or upper airway problems. See your doctor, ask if getting a stress test is appropriate due to your age. This is not something one should sit on.
Normal or not?: Since everybody becomes short of breath with exertion, it should first be determined if this is normal. Valvular and congenital heart disease, and various non-asthmatic lung diseases cause pathological breathlessness. Specific cardiac examples include: rheumatic heart disease (mitral stenosis), dilated or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and a large variety of congenital defects.
Possible: Studies have shown that many hay fever sufferers do have an over-reactive airway despite absence of symptoms. A few years back , I was one of the co-authors reported for the first time evidence for large airway (higher up than the small airways involved in asthma) constriction was found in patients with fever causing tightness sensation at the upper chest.
