Brief Answer:
Please upload the reports

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

So here, breathing problems could be due to multiple causes like heart problem like weakening of hearts pumping, lung problem, low hemoglobin or sometimes just age related. Are there any other symptoms like chest pain on exertion, palpitations or fast heartbeat? Is there a history of high blood pressure? Is she overweight?

So she is already being evaluated and underwent tests, you please upload all reports and also prescription so that I can guide you regarding a course of action.

Hope this solves your query.

Regards,
Dr. Sagar Makode, Cardiologist
