Occasional Shortness Of Breath Causes
My Husband is experiencing a cough that occurs in the early AM typically between 3-4AM that is followed by chills/hot flash and vomiting. Sometimes he throws up blood. Also causes chest pressure and occasional shortness of breath.
Cough: I would suggest you see a doctor as soon as possible to get a definitive diagnosis
Around the time I am ovulating, my asthma bothers me. I get shortness of breath occasionally. What may cause this?
For a few months, I have been experiencing shortness of breath, more when I am sitting or lying down (improved by exercise) and frequent forced burping with occasional acid reflux. Could all of this be caused by reflux or is it more serious?
Without ↑information: & detective work, impossible to say at a distance. Yet your theory (you're the only one who can perceive your symptoms) does make sense & you demonstrate an understanding of basics of differential diagnosis methodology. Like everyone, you are your own primary medical decision maker (physician if you will), regardless how competent, or not. Be ware, reflux, long term, does drive esophageal cancer.
Radial artery occlusion. Past two days have been having shortness of breath and sharp chest pain on and off. Occasional pain in wrist. What is cause?
Needs to be checked: You have chest pain associated with shortness of breath, you should see your doctor asap or go to the emergency dept of nearest hospital. You will need a detailed history and physical exam and if indicated xray or cat scan and blood test including arterial blood gases etc if indicated to find the cause of your symptoms. It may or may not be related to radial artery occlusion, depeding on the cause.See 1 more doctor answer

Ferritin=9. 2yr ago= <5. Been taking Fe. Tired 24/7, brain fog, occasional shortness of breath, swallow issues. CBC/TSH/T4 norm.30 yrs old. What now?
Although fatigue: Can still last despite your iron reserve get better, I would still look for any other issue like a low B12 level. You are also having an occasional swallowing problem. It is important to get a B12 level checked and also get an upper GI endoscopy done. If that is also negative then you should consult a rheumatologist. Good luck.
Shortness of breath: This is a symptom of not getting enough air. It can be caused by many things. If the person is normal but there isn't enough oxygen, if the person over exerts. If there isn't enough red blood cells in the blood. If the lungs don't work well, heart dysfunction, abnormal respiratory mechanics.
Many causes: Shortness of breath has many potential causes, many benign but some serious. If associated with other symptoms or progressive, professional medical assessment is prudent. Blood tests (looking for anemia, etc.), cardiac and pulmonary abnormalities can be sorted out fairly easily. Then the underlying causes for those abnormalities can be sought. Psychological causes can be responsible as well.See 1 more doctor answer
Big list: Shortness of breath is due to a demand for oxygen by your body in excess of your capacity to deliver it. This can be due to anemia, heart dysfunction, lung disease or airway problems. These will all be aggravated by exercise and if severe can cause a problem going up stairs or even walking. This needs evaluation by your doctor as soon as possible.
Many!: Lungs: asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, pneumonia (100 causes), pulm. Embolism ("clot"), pneumothorax, tumor, effusion and more. Heart: CHF with 100 causes anemia, thyroid xs or deficiency, obesity, rib cage deformity, paralyzed diaphragm, neuromuscular disorders (ms, als), foreign body, aspiration, psychogenic, hyperventilation, metabolic acidosis. I'm sure I've forgotten a few.
Many possibilities: You're taking albuterol so asthma & copd/emphysema come to mind. Pleural effusion & pulmonary embolism, too. Bronchitis & pneumonia. Heart attack & heart failure. Abnormal heart rhythm. Pneumothorax. If that's not enough, check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/shortness-of-breath/my00119/dsection=causes. Check w/your doc for thorough evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
Diaphragm motion: Dysfunction in any structure that surrounds your lungs could impair your ability to take deep breaths. Excessive tone or tightness of the diaphragm (a large muscle between your lungs and abdomen) or problems with the mobility of your ribcage are two possibilities. Practicing mindful deep breathing and gentle stretching of the torso can help these conditions.See 1 more doctor answer
