Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Chronic smokers can be at risk of developing a lung problem called COPD
(Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
), which is characterized by breathing difficulty, recurrent cough
and sometimes wheezing
. Smokers are also at a higher risk for developing cardiac problems, which can also present with breathlessness.
So, to be on the safer side, I would advise you to have a proper medical evaluation to rule out any serious problems. It is also important to stay quit in the future in order to avoid any further ahealth consequences.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
