5 Medical Conditions That Causes Shortness Of Breath

It can be hard to take a full breath when you do not have enough air. These feelings may be familiar to you if you do a lot of exercises, but if you do not do a lot of exercises, they can be scary.

It can be a sign of many different medical problems, such as heart and lung problems.

Some of the medical conditions that make it hard to breathe are:

1. Asthma

Asthma can cause your airways to become smaller, which can make it hard for you to breathe.

2. Heart failure

When the heart does not work well, blood does not fill and empty well. This health problem could cause fluid to build up in your lungs, making it hard to breathe.

3. Lung disease

Dyspnea can be caused by diseases like COPD, which is caused by smoking tobacco. Having tumors, like lung cancer, can also make it hard for you to breathe, which can make it hard to breathe.

4. Obesity

Having a lot of weight can strain your lungs and make it hard to breathe.

5. Poor fitness

Breathlessness can happen if you do not work out or are sick.
