Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
Please mention his symptoms. Breathing problem can be- asthma, bronchitis, a condition of the heart etc... Also what treatment he/she is taking for this. How long has he/she had it?

Good nutritious diet is must here, to keep the immunity up. Exercise and gym can be suggested only if the name of condition is known.

My doctor says I have fluid built-up in my lungs, also with some pneumonia left, just today after he viewed the x-ray. I have a pain in my left shoulder and upper arm since 2-3 days.
