Under stress conditions, the brain will be stimulated to produce stress hormones that are useful for preparing the body to deal with these outside stressors. One of the effects of these stress hormones is to improve the function of several organs, one of which causes narrowing of the airways, so that in some cases resulting in a sensation of tightness.
This condition is normal, and symptoms will decrease when the stressor disappears without special treatment. Shortness of breath is also normal when there is an increase in oxygen demand, for example due to high physical activity, including going up and down stairs. Shortness occurs as the body's response to get more oxygen supply due to increased heart activity.
