Shortness of breath is usually an indicator of pulmonary or cardiac problems as per Cleveland Clinic. When the heart is incapable of pumping blood to the rest of the body, heart conditions develop, which creates a pressure on the lungs leading to shortness of breath. However, there are two reasons for breath issues – congestion caused by blockage in nasal passage when enough air does not reach the lung’s air sac and bronchospasm where the muscles lining the lung spasm and constrict. If you are suffering from acute wheezing or coughing with breath issues, it may be asthma or something else related to the lungs. Often allergies cause breath problems which we often do not realize.
Allergic shortness of breath is indicated by issues affecting the upper respiratory tract, itchy eyes, continuous wheezing, coughing and runny nose which can be caused by allergens like pollen, mites, dust and even food. Knowing what causes these symptoms can be useful if one gets an allergy test and consult a doctor. Symptoms like nausea, skin rashes, vomiting, fast breathing and faster heart rate can also indicate allergic issues, if monitored regularly.
