  • Ask your dr. for a chest x-ray. It may be the onset of bronchitis, or maybe even walking pneumonia. Also, asthma can appear at any time. Some get it in childhood, while others don't get it until late teens or adulthood. Talk to your dr. about a non steroid rescue inhaler. This may help next time you're very short of breath. I've had asthma for 16 years, and it's not bad if dealt with properly.
