In brief: Depends
Depends on the cause of your breathing problems.
Should see your doctor, who should examine your lungs with a stethoscope and get a chest x-ray and also pulmonary function tests to determine the cause of your breathing problem. This diagnosis will then suggest the best treatment.

In brief: Shortness of breath
When people are so short of breath that they cannot complete a full sentence, we typically consider inpatient evaluation.
Both pulmonary and cardiac problems can cause shortness of breath. I strongly recommend evaluation by a physician as soon as possible.
