In brief: Certainly

But, there are many causes of sob.
..Any persistent symptoms should be addressed by your primary care provider. Sob in the presence of any of the following: (1) fatigue, (2) sweating, (3) neck, arm, or chest heaviness or discomfort, (4) cough, (5) fever or (6) chills does raise some concern about more serious, though unlikely, causes for your primary issue of sob.
