Have difficult breathing, heart palpitations, light headed, chest pressure. Gave her warm water, had burp, no relief

My daughter is experiencing hardness in breathing and heart palpitations. She just suddenly felt it as she was slouched on the bed. I asked her to sit up, drink warm water, and ever after a (small) burp, her condition hasn't improved. She describes it like gasping for air (shallow breathing). She feels light headed, and a slight pressure on her chest. What could this be?

Pulmonologist 's  Response
Your description suggests that your daughter could be suffering from asthma. You need to consult a pulmonologist who will examine her, do a spirometry and then start her on necessary inhaler medicines.
