Hi Siti, thanks for the question. Our respiratory tract consists of the nose to the lungs. The air that enters through the nose will then enter the lungs and the oxygen content is absorbed by your red blood cells. The red blood cells will then be pumped throughout the body by the heart to distribute the oxygen. Shortness of breath is a condition where the occurrence of difficulty in breathing will increase the frequency of breath. Shortness of breath can be caused by disorders of the lungs, heart or other organs in the body. Here are some of the causes:
stomach ulcers / stomach disorders
thyroid hormone disorders
Shortness of breath usually will always be followed by an increase in heart rate. This is because the two organs are interrelated. Shortness of breath is most often caused by a disorder in the lungs such as asthma. In asthma will feel shortness of breath when exhaling, and will be accompanied by a wheezing or "squeaking" sound. Asthma is often associated with allergies, usually asthma will appear accompanied by symptoms in the respiratory tract such as cough and runny nose. However, shortness of breath can also be caused by heart problems, shortness of breath due to heart problems usually appears during strenuous activities and improves after rest. Shortness of breath due to heart problems is usually accompanied by chest pain that radiates to the left arm. However, heart problems are rare in women aged 21 years.
You should see the nearest doctor for further examination. The doctor will perform an examination to determine the origin of the tightness you are experiencing. The doctor may perform a spirometry examination, x-ray to check the heart record if needed.
