Question: My wife is facing difficulty in breathing. She feels she is not getting enough air to breathe. After her 4-5 attempts of deep breathing, she finally feels better. This happens mostly when she is in her room which is not very well ventilated. It just has a air conditioner in the room for air. She doesn't have any major health problems but she is suffering from PCOS. I wonder if that could be the reason. Please suggest.

Brief Answer:
Is she having breathing difficulty on exertion?

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Possibility of poor ventilation in the room as a cause is more.
But better to rule out lung diseases first for her breathing difficulty.
So please let me know
1. Is she having breathing difficulty on exertion?
2. Is she having coughing?
Please reply me answers of above asked questions, so that I can guide you better. I will be happy to help you further. Wishing good health to your wife. Thanks.
