is a known complication of smoking
for a long time. Shortness of breath
(SOB) is one of the symptoms of the illness. Exposure to airborne mould can also cause respiratory symptoms like asthma
which might lead to SOB.
In your best interest, I would advise you to visit a chest medicine specialist. Also, I would advise you to quit smoking at the earliest. For the latter, you can get in touch with a psychiatrist
. There are therapies like MET and RPT which have been found to be very useful in helping the person quit addiction.
Let me reiterate once again that smoking is always harmful, and that it doesnot matter when you quit, quitting always is beneficial.
Hooe this helps
