Severe breathing problems
Breathing problems or breathlessness is the inability to take in the oxygen the body needs. Sometimes mild breathing problems are from a stuffy nose or hard exercise. But shortness of breath can also be a sign of a serious disease. Lung conditions can be the reason for breathing difficulties such as asthma, emphysema or pneumonia. Heart disease can cause breathlessness if the heart cannot pump enough blood to supply oxygen to the body. Stress caused by anxiety can also make it hard to breathe. If your child often has trouble breathing, it is important to find out the cause. In this case a pulmonologist might help you.
