Breathing problem, related to heart?

Is there a charge? My grand daughter is a student at Ross University in the Caribbean. They have almost no medical care for them there. She has been having trouble breathing for many weeks. She hasn t mentioned any doctors there who can do anything for the students. She is going to try to come home if her breating doesn t get better soon. I read online that there could be a problem with the heart . They don t allow the students to have any medications there. Not even aspirin . Is there anything that we can suggest for her to do?

Hi, breathlessness for few weeks could be due to allergic bronchitis/LRTI. but it is associated with other complaints like fever, cough with expectoration, wheeze... cardiac breathless associated with palpitation.she should see physician for ruling out cardiac or respiratory breathlessness.
