Hello Tantitigor, Thank you for your question.
Aside from shortness of breath, do you experience other complaints? Shortness of breath complaints are not always caused by disorders / diseases of the respiratory system but can also be caused by various other health conditions. The following are some of the causes of shortness of breath:
chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
stomach acid disease
To ensure the cause of your complaint further examination by a doctor is required. Please check with your specialist in internal medicine. In addition to asking questions from you, your doctor needs to do an examination on you. The treatment that will be given by a doctor will be adjusted to the medical condition that you are experiencing.
Please do the following suggestions:
consume food regularly
avoid consuming large portions of food, you should consume smaller portions but more often
avoid smoking habits and other exposure to air pollution
manage stress well
