6 doctors weighed in:

I only get 5-6 hrs of sleep, could this cause short breath?

In brief: Doubtful

I would think it could be the other way around- because of shortness of breath, it is limiting your sleep hours.
Should consider seeing your dr. Who can refer you for a sleep study.

In brief: No

I would not think there is any relation between the 5 hours of sleep and shortness of breath.
