Unclear reason: Shortness of breath is not often listed as a symptom traditionally associated with cluster headaches. However, my patients who have cluster headaches often mention that the pain is excruciating to the point that they feel out of breath. They also tend to pace and are extremely anxious. The anxiety may contribute to the shortness of breath too. Inhaling oxygen dramatically relieves the symptoms.
For 2 wks I've been exhausted, thristy, bad headaches and when I work out I get dizzy, short of breath, cold sweats and almost pass out.
Doesn't sound good: If I were trying to explain all those symptoms with a single diagnosis, I'd say you're anemic. It may be more complicated. You need some tests to figure just what's going on. New onset, uncontrolled diabetes could also do that. Some infections could as well. If a picture's worth a thousand words, imagine how much more information could be obtained by just examining you. Pls be checked.
I'm 23, my heart is racing at over 100bpm I'm short of breath and have a headache. What could be happening to me?
See your doctor: A doctor would need to get a more detailed history as the symptoms are to vague to diagnose you> you would also need a physical exam to try to diagnose you..
Unclear: It is, of course, normal to get short of breath when you run. If you feel that your breathing is abnormal, you should be evaluated (there are many possibilities and many tests). The headache is likely unrelated and has its own list possible causes. You should see your family doctor to get the ball rolling.
I'm trying to take a nap and I feel like I'm short of breath and wheezing with a bad headache I am only 5 weeks?
Asthma: Your wheezing raises the question of bronchospam. Do you have a history of asthma? Early pregnancy does strain the heart - if you have an unrecognized, possibly congenital heart condition, it may be brought out by pregnancy. In either case, if you're short of breath, you need attention. If you're uncomfortable, go to the ER now. If it can wait, call your doc tomorrow.See 1 more doctor answer

Showed symptoms of a cold, had cough with phlegm, pressure in head. Now all I have is headache, weakness, and a mild cough slightly short of breath. Help?
Go see your doctor: Most colds are viral in nature. In other words, they won't respond to antibiotics. However, shortness of breath shouldn't be ignored. While this may be reactive airway disease (variant of asthma), you'll need to go see your doctor for diagnosis ; management (inhalers). Headache ; weakness (where?) can be a sign of not getting enough oxygen (or other condition). So don't delay. Go see your doc!
