Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hi, I'm a 13 year old girl and I often find myself feeling really out of breath after doing simple things, like walking up stairs or walking fast, sometimes even just laying in my bed thinking. I have always been kind of sickly and am very susceptible to viruses. At first i thought i might have asthma or a heart issue. But I have also been very stressed lately with my EOC coming up, friends, and I'm moving. I read somewhere that  shortness of breath may be a sign of anxiety. Any ideas of what's going on?


Hi guest,

Anxiety can be a cause but shortness of breath can also point to a lot of other things including cardiac or respiratory problems.  It may be due to asthma.  It could also indicate anemia.

See your doctor.  Tell them what's going on.

Good luck.
