Among my many aliments the doc says I now have some lung problems. Walking is becoming extremely difficult for me.I can't go a few steps before stopping to catch my breath. I just received paperwork to allow me to carry a portable machine for a trail period. I am curious how others find these to handle on a daily basis.

Do you have heart efficiency concerns too? I think the machines are good for lung function, but if you also have heart trouble the shortness of breathe may sill persist.

not that long ago i read an article where carbon monoxide poisoning can cause shortness of breath. i was surprised at the percentage of occurrences but when you think of the amount of gas stoves, fireplaces, heater, grills and even wood stove, it should not be surprising. If you have any of these get a carbon monoxide detector.

My husband had surgery for cancer and he gets so short of breath just going to the bathroom. This long after surgery does not seem right. Doctor says give it more time that everyone bounces back differently and some not so good.

The doctor just diagnosed dad with COPD. We knew he was short of breath sometimes but COPD. Here is what I found symptoms to be
Symptoms include:

Coughing up more mucus than usual.
A change in the color or thickness of that mucus.
More shortness of breath than usual.

Many people develop breathing issues while entering 60's. It might be because you are loosing your lung power.

Difficulty in breathing, dizzy, anxiousness etc are all common if you have asthma. To manage your problem, get the necessary treatment and keep your symptoms under control with proper medication. It will be also good that you have sessions with a physio. Physiotherapy treatment can make a huge difference to your breathing and can help you manage your symptoms. Follow the breathing exercises as recommended by the physio, it might help you feel more relaxed.
