Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
There could be a few possibilities for your breathing difficulty, like:
- Anxiety-related (this is likely considering your age, absence of any other respiratory or cardiac symptoms and absence of any medical risk factors)
- Bronchial asthma
(this can also cause a struggle for breath, a sensation of tightness and often accompanied by a wheeze)
- Rarely, it can be an indicator of an underlying cardiac disease
It is difficult to pinpoint a diagnosis without a proper physical examination. So, I would suggest that you see a doctor for a detailed clinical examination (including a respiratory and cardiac examination), and if necessary, certain investigations (like a chest X-ray or ECG). Further treatment will depend on the diagnosis.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
