HI, thanks for using healthcare magicShortness of breath
, difficulty lying flat and swelling of the legs and ankles are usually indicators of fluid accumulation.
Fluid accumulates in the lungs causing shortness of breath.
This can occur due to heart failure
You should consider visiting your doctor as soon as possible.
You would be given diuretics and additional medication based on the cause of the fluid accumulation.
Diuretics encourage the loss of fluid from the body.
I hope this helps
