Sudden shortness of breath when not doing physical work. Cause?
Sometimes when I m breathing , I feel like the air is escaping my lungs and I lose my breath. It happens sporadically maybe once a month. I remember it happening in college one time that I started to panic because I couldn t catch my breath. I wasn t doing anything strenuous. Just sitting in class. The times it s happened I haven t been physically active so I m not sure what is causing it. I m 30 now and I just got that shortness of breath and I m laying in bed watching tv. I m a few lbs over weight but in college I was in shape so I don t think it s my weight that s causing the problem. Any ideas what can be causing this?
hi,you didnt mentioned whether you have any lung diseases in your childhood like asthma.If the the problem is due to that and you can have a chest xray to rule out and you can also consult a general physician more more details.
