Shortness of breath is a common symptom of asthma. Depending on how bad it is will decide as and when you need to take an inhaler. I suffer from asthma. However it may just be an allergy to certain things. Where as I am allergic to my dust, my brother suffers with symptoms of asthma however does not have asthma. We believe this is because he now works closely with cars and think the exhaust fumes could be causing it.. so what's changed? It's almost like a rash- and washing powder. Is there anything you've done that could trigger this irratation?

the shortness of breath may be a result of asthma symptoms. These can be relieved with a quick docor's appointment and a percription for an inhaler.

Hallo...Yes I heard from my father in law, it is his own experience. When he was young, he was sick, then he went to the doctor, the doctor gave him an injection , when he reached home, he felt short of breath and cold sweat all over his body. At last he just found out that the doctor had injected somekind of penicillin to him, from then on he just know that he is allergic to penicillin. So he told us to be careful and keep in mind, it is possible that we also have this kind of allergy. If you really want to find out ,just go for check up at hospital or clinic, they will have this kind of service!!! Happy mylotting!!!
