I'm a 30 year old female, moderately healthy and active lifestyle. But I've always had a bit of a breathing issue. I can get out of breath very
easy- walking up a flight of stairs and I'm struggling to talk normally. But I am very active and recently completed a 10km race and exercise

Every now and then while in active I feel short of breath, my heart races a little (not usually over 100bpm) and I find my self taking additional large, sighing, breaths.

It's never been severe or debilitating, but recently I've been really wondering that it does not seem normal. Does anyone know what it might be? Or could it be serious?

  • This sounds a lot like I suffer from. I am 31 years old and in poor health. I have Asthma. If I were you, I would go to your doctors office and get checked out for Asthma and other health conditions.Also, if you smoke, I would strongly recommend that you quit smoking as soon as possible. Did you know that they put Formaldehyde and even rat poison in cigarettes? Here is a complete list of chemicals in cigarettes:http://quitsmoking.about.com/cs/nicotineinhaler/a/cigingredients.htm - That one uses some technical language that I am not sure if you're familiar with.http://menshealth.about.com/cs/hearthealth/a/cig_contents.htm - This list is a lot easier to read. Also, I know its in the male health section but the information applies to both men and women.
