Not being able to get enough air while taking a breath is a very disturbing feeling. It can make you feel like you’re suffocating. The medical term for shortness of breath is dyspnea, and it’s a symptom that you must not ignore because it may be a sign of serious cardiac or pulmonary problems. Untreated, these conditions can worsen quickly and become life-threatening.
Symptoms of Dyspnea
Tightness in your chest
Difficulty breathing may hit you suddenly and without warning. Dyspnea can also become a long-term problem. If you experience trouble breathing on a regular basis, pay attention to when it happens, how often it happens and whether there are any triggers that cause your episodes of dyspnea. This history helps your doctor arrive at a firm diagnosis, especially when coupled with a thorough physical exam. If your breathing symptoms are sudden and severe, call 9-1-1, as you may need urgent medical attention.
