Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Shortness symptoms can be caused by a number of possibilities, which are often include:
Bronchial asthma, namely chronic / chronic inflammatory disease in the respiratory tract; characterized by a narrowing of the lower airway and a buildup of mucus resulting in overreaction, blockage, and limited airflow; symptoms: wheezing sound when exhaling, coughing and tightness which are especially heavy at night, chest feels like being bound; the symptoms usually worsen when there is exposure to risk factors (dust, mites, cigarette smoke, exercise, airway infections, or emotional stress)
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is a disease characterized by persistent and progressive air flow resistance and an increased chronic inflammatory response in the airways and lungs to harmful particles; risk factors: history of exposure to cigarette smoke, pollution, and genetics; symptoms: chronic shortness of breath, chronic cough that is usually productive but can also be unproductive, and easily tired
Pneumonia, which is lung inflammation, is most often caused by bacterial infections, symptoms: cough, fever, with / without shortness of breath

Panic disorders, namely panic attacks that occur suddenly, repeatedly, without knowing the time and place, fear always appears because panic attacks continue to occur, more commonly experienced by young adult women, there can be accompanying symptoms such as dizziness, nausea , tightness, feeling like being suffocated, numb
Because of the variety of possible causes of tightness, we recommend that you immediately consult a doctor or specialist in internal medicine so that it can be evaluated and treated appropriately. In addition to the history and physical examination, the doctor may consider supporting tests if there are indications, for example: chest x-ray, heart record, blood tests, and lung function tests.
