Causes Shortness And Difficulty Breathing?
Hello, I feel my chest hurts sometimes, and the breath must be taken occasionally and then discarded, sometimes the breath also faltered. Is the cause because I’m hot? Because before I was high in heat, and my high heat was due to a cold, a cold because of a long journey without a jacket and also the wind. Or because I often inhale mosquito coils, huh? A solution please. Thank you very much.
Hai Haifani .. Thank you for the question.
