Hi Zac-trouble breathing is nothing to fool around with. It could be due to a number of things-allergies, upper respiratory stuff, any number of things. Maybe you should see a GP. If they rule out any of the usual suspects then a pulmonary function test can shed more light on what is going on. Go see a doc today and let us know how you made out, OK? Cindy

I know that when I have days on end with shortness of breath it seems like the muscles used for inspiration are causing the problem. I have to get in a certain position to get a good breath. Mine also goes away for periods of a time. All I can say, zac, is that mine has been going on for about a year and I'm not worse. I hope the same for you. Leslie
